Last week, Google rolled out its impressive June Pixel update. Droid LifeHowever, many owners of Pixel devices are yet to receive the software update.

As of today, June 18, T-Mobile and Verizon customers are still waiting for the update. Since Google Fi runs on T-Mobile’s network, these users are also waiting for the update to be released.

Technically, Google isn’t late in pushing the update out to everyone: The company announced the update’s launch, saying it will begin on June 11 and will be “rolled out gradually over the next week depending on carrier and device.”

This is offensive to some Americans. Reddit user Some users aren’t too happy that they still haven’t gotten their hands on the new software perks, with one user commenting, “Looks like there’s no update again. Please Google,” while another questioned, “Why does the carrier matter? I used to have an iPhone and everyone got the update on the same day.”

Why worry? The June update is packed with great new features, notably allowing Pixel 8 or Pixel 8a users to use Gemini Nano, the company’s most efficient AI model for tasks on the device, a feature that was previously only available on the Pixel 8 Pro.

Additionally, for Pixel 8 owners, the update brings important upgrades to the Find My Device app, which allows users to locate their phone even when the battery is off or dead. The Pixel 8a, Pixel 8, and Pixel 8 Pro now support Display Port, allowing users to connect to larger displays such as computer monitors via USB-C. The update also includes improvements to the native Recorder app, reverse number lookup, camera updates, and more.

Everyone will eventually get this update from Google, and for Verizon and T-Mobile customers, that day is hopefully today.
