Google mistakenly releases confidential test build of next Android security update to Pixel XL
There appears to be no end in sight for Google's update blunders. After recently releasing the fingerprint sensor-breaking Android 7.1.2 update and multiple other buggy patches in the last few months, the tech giant now somehow managed to accidentally push a "confidential Googlers-only OTA" to a number of Pixel XL handsets.
Android Police reports that some Pixel XL owners received a "Dogfood" test build of the planned security patch for May 2017. The OTA notification specifically reads that this is a "CONFIDENTIAL INTERNAL ONLY" update which Google employees are supposed to test out, but are not allowed to "discuss or comment" externally.
