This means you can pick up the Pixel 3 for £639 and the 3 XL for £739.

This fix "keeps background apps from being prematurely closed", "improves memory performance in certain circumstances", and "improves camera capture performance". These monthly updates normally fix potential vulnerabilities for devices running Android 9, but this month's update includes specific patches for Pixel phones in addition to the normal security updates.

Fields referred to Heyer's mother in a recorded jailhouse phone call as a "communist" and "one of those anti-white supremacists". And many also wore red Make America Great Again hats, saying they were encouraged in the public display of their beliefs by U.S.

On Monday, December 3rd, Google pushed out the December 2018 Android security update, which just so happens to address more than a dozen functionality issues affecting the Pixel 3 and 3 XL. With features such as transcribing voicemail calls, expanded screen-time controls and dedicated image processing chips, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL earned impressive scores of 90 and 89, respectively. Right now, there's a Google Pixel 3 deal on offer which gets Google One subscribers $125 off a Pixel 3. You can check to see if it is available for your device from the settings menu. Once finished, only Pixel users will be able to enjoy this new app as this app is only exclusive to Pixel devices until Google adds these new features to stock Android.

Pixel 3 owners who have picked up a Pixel Stand accessory for their Google Home will be happy to hear Google has "improved notification visibility" while your phone is docked to the Stand (though it's unclear by the post as to what exactly those improvements are). Obviously, the base model Pixel 3 with 64GB of storage will be the one that will cost you the least amount of cash - after the $125 discount, you'll pay $674 for that model.
