Google has fixed the “Check for update” button with the latest update.

Remember the “Check for update” button on the Nexus and Pixel smartphones? You weren’t getting updates by tapping on it were you? That’s because the button was broken up till now. So, even when there was an update available, the Pixel and Nexus wouldn’t actually show it to you, that is, till Google decided your phone was ready for it. The button was supposed to start working from Oreo onwards, but didn’t.

There was an “API incompatibility” between the Android System Update code and manual user update code. With Google Play Services 12.2.09, this problem has been fixed.

Well, that has been fixed with the most recent update. It turns out, there was an “API incompatibility” between the Android System Update code and manual user update code. With Google Play Services 12.2.09, this problem has been fixed. This version is still in beta though, so it may be a little while before you get it.

The information comes from Reddit, with users reporting this change after the update. It’s probably not a big deal for everyone, but it does mean that an Android Security patch will be available faster if you want it.
