Google Pixel 4 / XL phones usher in the last Android firmware update

Google usually releases monthly Android system updates for supported Pixel phones on the first Monday of every month (except holidays). The current Android firmware update is for Pixel 4 and newer devices.

However, according to Google's update schedule, the October firmware is expected to be the last official promised update for the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL phones. Of course, it does not rule out that Google will release some emergency update patches in the future.

Below is the update


  • Fixed occasional audible hum or noise during calls when using wired headsets.
  • Fixed an issue where the device volume control in media player notifications would not work in some cases.


  • Fixed an issue that caused the launcher to crash when connecting to a virtual professional network in some cases.

User interface UI

  • Fixed a compatibility issue with certain app widgets in Android 13.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the media player to display the default icon for some media applications.
  • Fixed an issue that occasionally crashed the device when playing audio from local storage
  • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused a blank quick settings tile to appear in the notification shade.
  • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused the Work Profile toggle button to be truncated in the app drawer.

Wireless network

  • Fixed an issue that occasionally prevented available Wi-Fi networks from showing in the network selection menu in some applications.

The new firmware version number of all Google Pixel phones is TP1A.221005.002, except for the Pixel 6a, whose firmware version is TP1A.221005.003. As with previous updates, it may take days, or even weeks, to roll out to all devices.
