Google has pledged to supply Pixel Watch software program updates for not less than three years, guaranteeing characteristic drops till not less than October 2025.
Google says the three-year interval commences when the system goes on sale later this month, and it appears attainable Google will look to increase the help past the promised date in relation to safety updates.
In a support document Google says “software program updates embody Google Pixel Watch safety updates, and should embody characteristic drops and different software program updates.”
Google doesn’t essentially measure these updates as working system variations, because it does with Android. Historically, the corporate hasn’t launched a brand new model of Put on OS working system yearly. As 9to5Google factors out, the updates are delivered through the Play Retailer by apps/companies updates at irregular intervals..
The concept of Pixel phone-like Feature Drops is probably extra engaging, as Pixel Watch customers will get common new options as Google improves its suite. These updates will possible convey options according to what Google affords with future generations of the Pixel Watch too.
For those who’re on the fence about shopping for a Pixel Watch earlier than the 12 months is out, that is in all probability excellent news. You’ll know you’ll get a strong three years of the perfect options, and possibly not less than some continued safety updates thereafter.
It’s an identical technique to the one Google makes use of with its Pixel telephones. Final week Google launched the final assured software program replace for the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones, which have been launched in October of 2019. Now the three-years is up, we’ll see what Google continues to supply sooner or later.
We’d hope Google continues with safety updates for the following few months, to a 12 months. The way it proceeds would possibly give us extra clues about help for the Pixel Watch following the tip of the assured three-year replace interval.
