The iterative update, released to Pixel devices earlier this week, adds a number of smaller features to Android, including a picture-in-picture mode, a redesigned settings menu and a complete overhaul of Google’s signature blob emoji.

As is usually the case with these sort of announcement, the caveat applies that release timings can change, sometimes drastically.
