Recently, a few Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 owners reported seeing the January 2023 Play system update available for download after being stuck on the November update for months. This problem of getting Google Play system updates almost three months late is becoming a problem that concerns Pixel users.
This was not the case for yours truly as I was able to apply the update and after a reboot the Google Play system update showed a date of January 1st 2023. The update is approximately 63 megabytes when installed on the Pixel 7, and approximately 59 megabytes when installation on the Pixel 6 series.
Go to Settings > About phone > Android version to check which version of the Play system update you have on your Pixel. In that section you will see the versions for both the Android and Google Play system updates, which ideally should both have the same month. To check if an update is available for Google Play, tap that section to check for an update. If you’re still using an old version of Google Play Services and no updates are shown as available when you tap that section, make sure your Google Play Store is up to date, although that’s no guarantee. an update.
