If you’ve been finding that your Pixel smartphone has some memory management issues, where apps seem to be constantly closing themselves or restarting even after you’ve just launched them, then you might want to update your handset to the latest update that Google has recently announced.

Google has recently announced the December 2018 Android security patch, which is a monthly patch that they release to keep phones up to date on the latest security measures. The update also addresses some bugs and issues that Pixel handsets have been experiencing, like memory management where the update says that it has, “Improved memory performance in certain circumstances”.

This is applicable for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 handsets, so like we said if memory management seems to be a problem you’ve been facing, updating could help address those problems. The update will also improve upon the camera’s capture performance, and it also seems to deal with the Pixel Stand issue where it will improve on the notification visibility.

Note that the update hasn’t been released yet as Google has simply announced it, although we imagine that its release should be pretty soon, so do keep an eye out for it if these are improvements and changes that you’re looking forward to.
