Google has just published a brand-new update for the Pixel Watch after distributing the January 2023 security fixes to the Pixel range. Only the most recent security updates and bug fixes are included in it, which comes after the watch’s initial OTA update from last month.
The most recent update (build number RWD9.220429.073) has been trickling out to Pixel Watch users, and it should show up on your wristwatch in the coming days, according to Google. For owners of the Pixel Watch in Japan and Taiwan, Google is also rolling out a new version with the build number RWD9.220429.073.J1.
The Pixel Watch receives the most recent security updates as well as a significant bug repair with this version.
The New Pixel Watch Patch Has Bug Fixes
The update’s complete changelog is provided below:
Changelog for the January 2023 Pixel Watch upgrade
Third-party watch faces shutting off after 15 minutes when Always On Display (AOD) is enabled is addressed with Watch Faces Fix.
If you haven’t gotten the update, you may manually check for it in the Settings app on your watch by going to the System menu and selecting the System updates option. If it’s not available, keep tapping the “Your watch is up to date” prompt to start the update download. To hasten the procedure, make sure Bluetooth is turned off in the Connectivity settings.
Sadly, Fall Detection is not included in the Pixel Watch’s January 2023 update. After a reset earlier this month, the function began to surface for certain users, but after the upgrade, the option is no longer visible under the Safety and Emergency area. In the following days, Google could make it available through a server-side upgrade. When it becomes publicly available, we’ll be sure to inform you right away.
