Monthly update gives Pixel 4 owners something they really wanted

Yeah, Monday! Google just posted the April 2020 Android security patch for Pixel phones and you can update to it right away if interested.

The April update brings a lot of general Qualcomm patches and various non-specific framework and system patches. Two of these Pixel-exclusive updates are related to Bluetooth problems while the third relates to lag when opening the keyboard in certain apps. But Pixel 4 users don't have to wait until Android 11 is released in September because today's monthly Pixel security update adds this option. We saw this arrive in the Developer Preview recently and it now has been pushed out to the stable version for Pixel 4 devices. He/she will be able to unlock your handset simply by putting the screen up to your face while you're sleeping. If you want to enable the new feature for yourself, go to Settings - Security - Face unlock.

Build numbers are also the same across the board this time (QQ2A.200405.005, April 2020), without any specific images for specific carriers, like we've seen with some recent updates.
