Google today delivered minor system updates to its Pixel and Nexus devices. The factory images made available from Google for the Pixel and Nexus handsets bring back the "check for update" button within the system settings. More importantly, the system update builds in the November security patch from Google. According to the latest Security Bulletin, the November patch resolves two critical issues and a large number of serious issues that could lead to remote code execution. Knowledgeable Pixel and Nexus owners can install the factory images manually; the over-the-air downloads have yet to appear. Separately, Google pushed the initial build of its Daydream VR services to Pixel and Nexus devices. Daydream VR services works directly with Google's new Daydream View and existing Google Cardboard virtual reality goggles. The updates are free to download.
