The advantage of owning a Google Pixel or Nexus device is that, at least within the device’s supported lifespan, you’re guaranteed to get Android updates and new versions first before anyone else does. At least in theory. If you got your device via a carrier, however, you will still face some delays, though not as much as OEM phones. The good news is that Verizon has finally started pushing out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Pixel and Pixel XL phones under its care. The strange news is that it comes with two features never before heard in Oreo land.
