“Discover the Location of Pixel March Feature Drop with Google”

March Feature Drop for Pixel Users Delayed


Pixel 4a (5G) or later users were awaiting the release of the March Feature Drop for their eligible handsets on the first Monday of March at 10 am PST/1 pm EST. The delay in the release of the update has left Pixel users anticipating its arrival with bated breath.

Expected Monthly Pixel Updates

Google usually releases monthly Pixel updates and feature drops at the aforementioned time. Although, the stakes are higher in March, as the update was expected to have a plethora of cool features for Pixel users.

Security Bulletin Update

Google released the Android Security Bulletin for March. However, the link to the Pixel update is broken, leading Pixel users to become impatient. Google has not provided an explanation for the delay yet.

Pixel Update Issues

The delay is not a surprise, as Google has had problems with Pixel updates since the Pixel 6 series released in 2021. In January, T-Mobile subscribers with Pixel 6 and 7 lines missed the update, although it could have been related to carrier network work.

February Google Play Update

Although the March Feature Drop is delayed, the February Google Play system update is available. You can check for the update by going to Settings > Security & privacy > Updates > Google Play system update. The update weighed 50MB in the Pixel 6 Pro.

Restarting Your Phone

After installing the February Google Play update, you will need to restart your phone, which may take longer than usual, so don’t be alarmed.

Exiting the Beta Program

Many Pixel users running the Android 13 QPR2 Beta anticipated exiting the beta program without penalty once the stable version of the beta was released. Unfortunately, that stable version is the March Feature Drop, which has yet to be released.


Until the update is released, Pixel users have no choice but to wait. This delay has left Pixel users feeling a bit infuriated, but they can keep checking for updates. We will update the article once the update is released or if more information about it becomes available.
