    So mostly under the hood and background improvements. A few cosmetic new things ...

    One thing I'm liking is that new app installs will ask you for notification permissions. Seems like apps that were installed prior to A13 get grandfathered in but any new downloads it will ask you for permission to send notifications

    I only found it recently (before the 13 update today). It was buried in settings and you really had to use the search to find it.

    I started to do this, then saw an article headline that you can't go back to 12 after installing it. Doesn't really seem like it's risky, but it is the first release version..

    My Pixel 6 Pro has been on the A13 beta since the Developer versions months ago so I know I'm not going back to ye olde 12, A13 has been a big improvement over 12.
    BTW: You can go back but I believe you will have your phone wiped in the process. Not 100% sure as I never wanted to go back.

    LOL @ ye olde 12. The article I read says increments the version bit of the bootloader (or something to that effect). I would've thought a full factory image flash would work, but it didn't sound like it to me.

    The update should be finished by now on mine.. (nope, only 2/3 on the progress bar.. slowwwww!)

    It's not slow, it's on Google time.

    Well it's been on Google time optimizing my device for at least 30 minutes if not longer. I paused and resumed, and the progress bar went back to about 25%.

    At least the phone can still be used when updating.
