Google Accidentally Released Dogfood Test Build With May 2017 Security Update To Pixel XL

 

Looks like Google has made a bit of a boo boo this morning with some Pixel XL owners reporting they’ve been prompted to download a new Googler only version of the May security update. The Pixel XL received an unexpected OTA notification today.




A number of readers reported that they received an OTA notification for a software update that reads: “CONFIDENTIAL INTERNAL ONLY – This is a confidential Googlers-only OTA to update your Pixel XL with May 2017 security patches…”

This whole update weighs about 62MB which has a build number of N2G470, given the small size of the security update, and the fact that there’s nothing new in the UI department (visually), there can’t be much harm done.
One user reported that he got the new Play Store UI after installing the update, which could have set-off a server-side change in the Play Store.

Has anyone else received this update? Have you noticed anything else different? Let us know if your Play Store UI was updated as well.
