That has to do with the face unlock. Now, One of the major flaws of the Pixel 4 and 4XL is you could unlock the device using face unlock. If your eyes are closed, they've since fixed that. So if we go into device settings and we'll go under security, then we'll go to face unlock. First of all, Put your pin, we now have the option to require eyes to be opened and always require confirmation. So we now have this for face unlock so if we turn on , it will not unlock without your eyes open at that time. So don’t forget to turn on this new feature because it works pretty well.

Now there are three fixes that apply to all supported devices. So the first thing is, they fixed the memory leak, which can prevent additional BLE connections that's fixed on all Pixel Devices from the to newer.

They also have a fix for dropped Bluetooth audio input in the call In certain scenarios. so If you were having Bluetooth issues with calls or call quality and things like that, expect that to be resolved now.

Finally, there's a framework fix for occasional lag when opening the keyboard within a certain app. So if you're using the Gboard (Google Keyboard), maybe in a specific app whatever that app might be, It should be fixed. Now that's really it for any of the major features that's not very exciting.
