Google has now rolled out the August Android security patches update to their Nexus and Pixel devices. Do you have a Pixel or Nexus phone? Then you can now get the latest security update for getting the best protection.

As usual, in the first week of the month, the Mountain View company releases a new update to address the critical vulnerabilities in Android. The update is always available only for Nexus and Pixel devices, that’s because these devices run on the purest form of Android. Other manufacturers will then continue to test the update for their version of Android.

Every month, we are suggesting you to quickly download and install the update. That’s no different for this month.

The update is available for Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel, Pixel XL and Pixel C. The monthly security update is usually automatically arrived on your device. Don’t you have patience? The factory images and full OTA images are both available on Google’s server for downloading by users.
