    I got my device through VZW. They've been really good about being on time with the Pixel. Your region is probably next.
    I am not worried - can't get to all phones at the same time. Have had Verizon and Google Pixels - no update issues with either.

    For ALL Pixel phones the updates come from Google, not Verizon. You can buy your phone from Verizon and go to another carrier and use their sim card. The updates will continue coming from Google.

    Under your logic, the phone wouldn't be supported by Verizon anymore if you take your phone to another carrier. So how would the phone receive updates.
    Shouldn't we all be able to update at the same time then ?

    That's not accurate... Carriers still have to push the update out to their users.

    When you pop in a sim overseas, the phone still updates the latest patches. You don't need to have Verizon services. There is nothing on this phone specific to Verizon outside of the sim card. The Pixels don't rely upon the carriers to push updates and software to the phones.

    With my other Verizon phone. It tells me I have a Verizon update. It highlights that it's from Verizon. The Pixel 2 XL didn't do that at all. I checked it and it mentioned nothing about Verizon unlike my other phone.
    I can't speak to overseas, but domestically an update has to be tested first.

    No, you are incorrect. Updates come from Google. That's one of the bigger reasons to buy a Pixel...

    Window dressing. Verizon wants to appear to be proactive. All Pixel updates are coming from Google. No Verizon testing of any kind.

    Don't you find it interesting that the update number Verizon posted is the exact same image number that is posted on Google's web site? Verizon is simply announcing the update. It's not coming through Verizon.

    Google has 2 versions of the update then, 1 for the Google Pixel and one for the VZW version - correct.?
    Both are released by Google?

    Google can't "leapfrog" a provider if you buy their phones. Unlocked from Google directly .. different situation.

    That there are 2 versions. Updates come from Google. As had already been mentioned, you could take your Verizon Pixel 2, bring it to another carrier, get it connected to that carrier's system, and you'd still get the same update as all the other Pixel 2s on the planet.

    People who are only activated on Project Fi are getting updates also. Today. Same day. Same update.

    Granted, Google will roll these updates out gradually, they don't want all Pixels hitting their servers at the same time. So there could be a few hours delay, maybe even as long as a day. But that's not because of some "testing" that Verizon is doing.

    They can, they do, they are. You need to do some more research instead of making assumptions. You are mistaken.

    The update includes the new color options! Oversaturate your phones so the haters can stop hating. I'm going to stay in natural mode.
    I've settled on "Boosted".

    That there are 2 versions.
    Then why are there 2 different build numbers listed - see my post #35 ?

    I've had Google Pixels and Verizon Pixels - the Google Pixels do not get the My Verizon , Messenger +, or go90 apps, which the Verizon Pixels do.

    What am I missing here? Must have eaten too much pepper spray during my CO career with CT DOC -
