That's actually the selling point of Pixel phones. They silently download OTAs in the background.. and then all you need is a restart, and the phone's updated already.
I personally prefer to initiate the download myself instead. A notification that there is a new update is enough.

In the Youtube app, is anyone having this issue whereby in fullscreen mode, the controls UI pops up when you touch the fingerprint sensor? Is there some way this can be turned off? And yes, my "Swipe fingerprint for notifications" setting is disabled.

I believe it's called A/B partition.

A has the old version software. When there update, will update on B partition. Reboot into B and A on standby vice versa.

If update fail, will rollback to A partition.

It's good if users have the choice to go back to the older firmware.

I switch off my automated update.

I prefer to wait a few days or weeks to update.

A/B already exist long ago within the Pixel series.

It's good if users have the choice to go back to the older firmware.
Actually rolling back firmware is something every OEM will want to avoid even on Google's end. It is also a design in security for you to prevent the system to actually rollback. Once you have successfully booted into the new partition the older version is invalidated so people who are trying to roll back your system it a less secure version will not be able to do so. So Rollback protection kicks in and ensures that you can't go back. But until you've actually successfully booted the new image, rollback protection doesn't consider it to be the current system image.

If anyone is doing a full adhesive tempered glass (LOCA Based) and are finding problems with bubbles after curing, see if this video helps

Hi,

Does your assistant work offline? Like just make a call, do calculations etc. My Pixel 2 XL says "Can't Reach Google at the Moment" when there's no connection.

My previous phone Moto Z was able to do simple things offline like calculations or create reminders, so was surprised when I couldn't do anything without connection on this phone.

Thanks!!
