Google System Updates: This is new for Android and Google Pixel

The new month isn’t all that new anymore, but there are still a few updates to come. This includes the new Google System Updates, which have now been announced.

This is behind the Google System Updates

Almost simultaneously with the new monthly update (security patch, Android Security Bulletin), Google is also releasing new Google system updates.
