There was much celebration in the Android Police virtual HQ earlier this year when Googler Elliott Hughes revealed that the much-maligned “Check for update” button was getting an overhaul. After so many pointless presses, this button would finally do something on Pixel and Nexus devices. If there was an update available, the button would download it. However, this feature still isn’t working. According to Hughes, the bug that broke this feature will be fixed in early 2018.
The ‘Check for update’ button on Pixel/Nexus devices still isn’t pulling the latest OTAs as promised, but it’ll be fixed in 2018 was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
