One Reddit user asked if it was safe to finally upgrade their Google Pixel 7 device to Android 14 software.

Late last year, Google acknowledged that Android 14 was causing some issues for Pixel users.

It’s not uncommon for software updates to have some initial glitches.

Reddit user Lis05H acknowledged this in their question.

They wrote: “As many of you know, Google had problems with its Android 14 when it was pushed to Pixel phones (7 specifically).

“After Google pulled the update back, it’s been one month that they’ve rolled it out again.

“Are all the bugs fixed? Did anyone that recently updated their Pixel 7 encounter any bugs?”
