- Google has announced its December 2021 Feature Drop, coming to select Pixels starting this week.
- The update brings new wallpapers, Snapchat features, improvements to Now Playing, and more.
- Notably, this is different from the more general Android update Google announced on December 1.
One of the many benefits of owning a Google Pixel phone is receiving monthly Feature Drops, which bring small-but-useful new features to Google’s phones. Google has just announced the December 2021 update for Pixels. If you’re a Snapchat user or you’ve been waiting for a more robust Now Playing feature, this update is for you.
On Pixel phones running Android 12, you can already set a double-tap gesture to quickly access the Google Assistant or open an app. After you install this month’s update, you’ll be able to set the double-tap action to launch Quick Tap to Snap, which will launch you right into Snapchat. This feature will be available on Pixels 4a 5G and newer. Also, sometime this month, a Pixel-exclusive Pixel Face lens is coming to Snapchat.
