    Slightly misleading headline. Subhead clears it up, but I still ended up checking for an update on my phone before clicking the link to the article. Such is life, you got my click

      Nothing is misleading, it IS rolling out. And like every Android updates, you either flash, side load or wait.

  • Techno Bill

    Sideloading the OTA is not a “lengthy process”. It is one command. Relatively trivial.

      I was about to say the same

      It’s pretty simple if you know what you’re doing, but it’s not something I’d recommend to a novice user.

    Two days later and still no Android 8.1 Oreo update available for my new Google Pixel 2 XL 128GB, very annoying….

    I thought Google was a big professional software company? ….. Waiting should never happen!

    I never had this problem with my Microsoft Lumia 950 XL with Win10M 1709 OS

    If Microsoft said there was an update you got it the day of!!

      That’s because Microsoft only had to update about like 5 phones world wide.

    Sideloaded 8.1 broke mobile data for me. Factory reset didn’t fix it went back to 8.0 and it works again on telus .

    My wife got the update on her Telus pixel 3 days ago. I’m still waiting on my Koodo pixel XL.

    It is now Dec. 10th and my Pixel 2 XL has still not received the update. Anyone else still waiting?

    Cheers…
