Google specifies Pixel and Nexus end of support dates


Google has updated the Nexus and Pixel support pages to provide specific dates for when the company will stop issuing software and security updates for the Pixel, Pixel Xl and recent Nexus devices.

Both of the company’s 2016 smartphones will continue to receive major Android system updates until October 2018. Moreover, Google will continue to update the two devices against security threats until October 2019.

Neither of these dates is strictly new as they conform to Google’s previously announced promise to continue issuing security updates “for at least 3 years from when the device first became available on the Google Store, or at least 18 months from when the Google Store last sold the device, whichever is longer.” Still, it’s good to have those dates down in writing. See the full lists below.
