Ever since the Pixel 6 launched in late 2021, users have been complaining about all sorts of bugs that affect the display, fingerprint scanner, and other important tools. These issues were supposed to be fixed in a December update, which was rolled back due to a bug that prevented emergency calls. Now, Google is rolling out a January Pixel 6 update.
The January Update (build number SQ1D.220105.007) should Fix some common Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro issues, though Google hasn’t released any patch notes to confirm which bugs are squashed (we’ll update this article when that happens).

That said, we know that this update includes some small fixes and improvements that rolled out to other Pixel devices on January 4th. It also contains all the changes originally planned for the Pixel 6 December update, including improvements to the reliability of the fingerprint sensor.
Notably, Google pushed this update a little earlier than expected. The company initially claimed that its January update would arrive at the end of the month.
If you are a Pixel 6 user, you can either wait for this update to come to your device or install it manually. Full OTA image and factory image are available on Google Play Services. (OTA image loading is easier and does not require a factory reset.)
This story is developing. As such, we will update this article with new information as it becomes available.
