    Shouldn't be no. It's just some security fixes. It isn't a major OS update so it won't be big.
    Oh okay, thanks

    Nope. It's about Oreo Beta. I enrolled but it's still showing"Up to date".
    That's just a signup sheet... There is no active beta test going on at the moment, so nothing will happen. When another beta release is released, you'll get a notification that it is available and ready to install.

    What version do you currently have loaded?

    Oh, the lag thing.... based on everything that I've pieced together, I think I know what is going on. There's a bunch of steps involved with installing an over-the-air update like this. If you let the phone do it, it'll download the file and when it installs, it fires off a bunch of scripts to load the update on the the the inactive system partition (remember, the Pixel 2 has two of them)... it then runs a bunch of stuff to pre-load it, then it will boot into that second partition without the need to go through the old "Upgrading Android" recovery screen.

    The phone will then boot up and run a few cleanup tasks to finish things up (That's that notification you see).

    Now, I don't think that this lag has anything to do with that notification... that's been there all along. I think whatever is causing this is a difference between how the phone installs the OTA on the secondary partition when fully booted vs while in Recovery. They might have tweaked something in all those preload scripts and whatever it is isn't getting called properly when you load the OTA from Recovery...

    But when you reboot the phone that last time when its laggy... somewhere in there, that function gets called (maybe it's something to do with the runtimes, that's my guess) and everything starts running as expected.

    As someone who's been in QA for way too long, my money is that whatever is causing this doesn't occur in every phone that sideloads the OTA...and I am positive they spent FAR more time testing the OTA install from the main system menu because that's where 99% of the users will kick it off. So.... the tests of the Recovery OTA probably passed the few times they ran it and they never saw any issues on boot so they marked it passed and moved on to the next test case.

    Hmm.. how long have you been signed up for the beta? You should have been upgraded to 8.1 last month.

    Other than the 51mb security patch that was released, will there be an update in January to address software bugs?

    It's the dual boot thing Google added last year. Automatic system updates is probably turned on (you can check in developer options), so it'll download and install the update on the inactive system partition when it becomes available and notify you.. if you accept it it'll just reboot into that second partition and you don't have to wait.

    If you don't click on update, it'll just sit there on the second partition until you do.

    Unenroll from Beta. Beta users do not receive updates via the regular channel, and right now there are no Beta updates.

    No next update will be in February, unless there is some crazy bug that pops up that affects everyone.

    This patch should have addressed some bugs, as it states when installed it also includes performance enhancements and such and such in addition to security fixes.

    I used to feel the same way but sideloading is pretty quick and easy.

    They don't receive updates OTA? Google support chat told me otherwise.

    And even if there is no Beta update being pushed today, there must be an actual version of Oreo Beta, right?

    I thought it was like on my iPhone X. Even 6 months down the road, if I enroll in Beta, it'll still be pushed OTA to my device.

    You don't receive regular updates if you are actually on a beta version. For example when everyone was on 8.0, Beta users were on 8.1 and they were not getting the regular monthly security updates but beta uses received incremental beta updates.
    There is no need to be on beta right now but you should still be receiving updates.

    No. There is no beta at this time.

    That is because they had a beta. How is Google going to push you something they don't have out? .

    I was sure there was a Beta version of Oreo. I never would've guessed it stopped at Nougat

    There was -- when Oreo was new. It isn't new anymore and the stable version is out.

    There was then a beta for 8.1 -- now that beta is over since the official 8.1 is out. When they decide to move on to the next one another beta will come out.

    Beta is for testing the new version. After the new version becomes official there is no longer a beta until they move on to the next set of software (such as 8.2). We are in the lull between the software.
