#Innovation and upgrades are the mantra in today’s world of #competitive #business and all #corp giants seem to swear by it. Moving along this trend, #tech giant Google has recently announced the launch of Android 10 for Pixel users. The tech behemoth, on September 3rd, officially began a classified roll out of #Android10 update, exclusively for the #Pixel users, around the world.

After testing the beta version for months, Google plans to initially provide the updated #android #interface only to Pixel users. However, conjectures from industry insiders raise hopes that the updated #Android version will be made available to other phones as well.
