April 2022 security update released for Pixel 3, 4, 5, and Pixel 6 series with several fixes [Changelog]

Google released the Android April 2022 security patch update for the Pixel family. The update comes with several fixes.

In terms of updates for their devices, Google is always on time: here comes the April security update for the Pixels which, like every time, does not bring tangible news (for those you have to wait for the Feature Drops ) but corrects several bugs and security issues.

Google Meet will now let users livestream their video meetings on YouTube

Google has therefore solved several security flaws, more or less serious and concerning different aspects of the operating system, which could lead to various problems for users if exploited by some attacker ( here is an exhaustive list ). Bug fixes are also inevitable: it improves the management of wireless charging, problems with the camera, and many areas of the system have been solved.
