Fix an updating issue

When updates become active

Your Pixel C installs downloaded Android updates in the background. The installed updates become active the next time that you restart your device.

Your device automatically restarts while it installs downloaded Android updates. The updates become active when installation finishes.

Not enough space available

If you see a "not enough space available" notification,  learn how to Free up storage.

An update didn't download

Let the update automatically try again

If an update doesn't download, your device will automatically try again over the next few days.

  • When the update is available again, you'll get a notification. Open the notification and tap the update action.
  • If you need to manually check for the update from your Settings app, wait to check until at least 24 hours after the time that the update didn't download.
