Google Pixel software updates


Hi there,

I'd like to pre-order the Google Pixel and I'm wondering if the software updates will be pushed to phones straight from Google or if it will go through Koodo/Telus carrier approval process first.  A Rogers rep is claiming that all updates will be pushed straight from google for Pixels on their network.

This was never answered by Koodo? All other carriers seem to say it's from Google but it seems grey. Any Koodo response?

Doesn't need an answer from Koodo, since Google already answered it:

There may be a delay in updates for carrier-sold Pixel devices.

Ivan is correct, Koodo/TELUS will test/certify software before it is released to their customers. I suspect other carriers do the same.

See that's what I was getting at. So Koodo/Telus does touch them before they come out. This is what I read on other carriers sites. And there is an overarching phrase that allows the carrier to not provide that update should they have a reason. Therefore updates do not come directly from Google. This would mean the carrier doesn't touch it.

Wich is bullcrap since Google is saying it will be updated right away. I have been waiting a month. For 7.2. and Google told me I have to wait for Kodoo. I never hate to wait with IOs
