Verizon's Pixels have their own Android 7.1.2 builds, rolling out right now

Verizon's Pixels have their own Android 7.1.2 builds, rolling out right now


This Monday Google released the latest version of Android for the devices it handles, namely Pixels and Nexuses. Android 7.1.2 isn't a huge jump compared to 7.1.1, as you'd expect from the minor version incrementation. But it should fix some annoying bugs, so there's that.
Today Verizon has started rolling out the software to Pixel handsets it sold, and oddly enough these get a different build number compared to all the other Pixels out there. What's more, Verizon's builds aren't even listed by Google on its factory images and OTA zip files pages.
If you own a Pixel or Pixel XL purchased from Big Red, you are about to receive Android 7.1.2 build NHG47K. If you bought yours from Telekom you get N2G47J, while everyone else is to receive N2G47E.
Here's Verizon's changelog for its release:
This update includes these improvements:
•Better performance and connectivity for Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi
•Adds a new feature allowing you to back up and restore 1st-party apps such as Calendar™, Drive™ and Messenger
•Better Voice call performance
•Latest Android™ security patches
This update fixes the following issues:
•Certain HD Voice/Wi-Fi Calling options were missing after the phone's software was updated
•In rare cases the phone was not able to receive text messages.
As usual with Google software updates, the rollout is probably staged so it may take a few days for the new build to hit all Verizon Pixels out there. It is certainly on the way though.

The Rock teams up with Apple for a funny Siri commercial

The Rock teams up with Apple for a funny Siri commercialTwas a sunny day, everyone minding their own business until Dwayne Johnson - The Rock released a poster for a movie, co-starring Apple’s Siri. Later he clarified it’s actually “a crazy fun commercial”.

The video starts with Johnson nonchalantly cutting a Bonzai tree and trying to record a catch phrase. Then he asks Siri for his schedule and goes on an adventure. The Rock asks Siri for his Lifegoals list and then to call him a Lyft ride. He switches seats with the driver as the video references the stunts Johnson performed in the latest Fast and Furious movies. Siri also brings up the temperature in Rome, and next thing you see is the actor hijacking a plane to the Italian capital.
While hanging from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and painting, The Rock asks Siri to read the last email. Later he shows his fashion line and texts through the voice assistant. The whole 3 minutes 45 seconds is filled with Siri responding to every …
