    Just update the last apk 'Google play services' and get the update..
    I might try this, but I thought the latest one was at the top of the list not the last.

    Yeah, same here, the inconsistency is weird. I got it on the 3rd or 4th last month as well. And still don't have it yet. I don't understand why they don't push out the update to the Play services to everyone. That was supposed to fix the broken button.
    Which version you have?

    11.9.76 I joined the beta as that seemed to facillitate getting the latest update from what i had heard, but never happened. Can't uninstall the beta now either it seems.

    I downloaded it around the 7th, but just got the Pizel yesterday and I'm still too busy to load it. Maybe in a few days.

    OK, decided to go with the apk, the update popped right up and installing now. Maybe the newer security will fix my phantom ring issue

    I'm sitting here laughing at myself. I came from a Droid Turbo that took over a year to get Marshmallow, and here I was getting all pissy because my Pix2 was one week late getting a monthly security patch

    I had to remove my company profile /email security off phone. As soon as I did the update arrived. Then I just had IT reinstall the email work profile /security
    Thanks for the tip! I just turned off the work profile and I have the February update downloading/installing. I did not need to de-register my device, just turn off the work profile (which disables the company security certificate).

    Did you get the update to 11.9.76?
    Once I got that, even though it's not the version that fixes the 'Check for update' button, I rebooted into Safe mode and the update showed up by itself. YMMV.
    I'm still on 11.9.75, but as soon as I disabled my work profile I was able to tap the check for updates button and it started downloading.

    My Pixel 2 XL 128 was purchased directly from Google. I just got the Feb 5 update on Feb 13. That's an 8 day lag! Very disappointed with Google!

    Better than an 80 or 120 day lag, isn't it? Only last week was my Samsung Tab S3 running Nougat patched against KRACK. Until last week it was still running the AUGUST patch level. I'm OK with getting the update 8 days after release...

    Or did I miss a [/s] at the end of your comment?

    I've been with Google since the beginning and updates were never like this.

    It really isn't that bad. If you compare it to any other phone manufacturer in the Android world it is insane at 8 days only.

    Also with the recent Google Play Services fix the next update in March will happen in batches unless you press the update button -- then it will be instant.

    They have been since the Pixel line and back even when I had my Nexus 6P.. so not sure what you are talking about. Updates went out in batches.

    It is one of the reasons you see articles about the Update Button finally doing something (like the article below)...

    I do recall getting updated when pressing the update button. Maybe a working update button going forward will be what I was used to. ;-)

    Well as you can see that article is from Sep. 2017. So it was a new thing w/ Oreo where they finally made it do that. After that it bugged and broke / they had to re-fix it. The feature of tapping update and it forcing a direct pull are new .

    Therefore if you remember it that way before you were simply just lucky with your batch order.
