Last year, Google launched a support page to show Nexus owners when their devices would cease getting Android version updates. Now Google Pixel owners can learn when they’ll stop getting updates, too.
Google says that the Pixel and Pixel XL will no longer be guaranteed to get Android version updates after October 2018, two years after their launch. They’ll no longer be guaranteed any security updates after October 2019, three years after their launch.
Google previously committed to releasing Android version updates to Nexus phones for two years after their release date, so it’s no surprise to see this policy extended to Pixel phones. Google will tack on an additional year of guaranteed security updates for Nexus and Pixel phones, which is great because most people keep personal information on their smartphones, and so it’s important for them to stay secure. Now Nexus and Pixel owners can rest easy knowing that their phone will be secure for at least three years after its launch.
