As soon as the new month begins, smartphones makers rush towards releasing new updates to series of their in-house devices. Google is doing the same with its Pixel smartphone today.

According to XDA Developers, the following are the smartphones getting the August 2021 software update:

  • Pixel 3 (XL): RQ3A.210805.001.A1
  • Pixel 3a (XL): RQ3A.210805.001.A1
  • Pixel 4 (XL): RQ3A.210805.001.A1
  • Pixel 4a: RQ3A.210805.001.A1
  • Pixel 4a (5G): RQ3A.210805.001.A1
  • Pixel 5: RQ3A.210805.001.A1

The latest software update fixes several bugs, including those affecting closed-source vendor components from Qualcomm, MediaTek, and others.

This month’s update doesn’t bring the Android 12 update. We expect it to come in the following month.

Interestingly, this software update also fixes an issue with Google Assistant. Earlier, we noted the often Google Assistant is self-activated, which was a threat to many users.
