Google released the Android Security Patch for April 2019 in an attempt to further improve the overall security and stability of Android devices. 

Android Security Patch for April 2019 consists of the 2019-04-01 and 2019-04-05 security patch levels, which address a total of 89 vulnerabilities across several components, including the Android framework, Media framework, Android system, and Qualcomm components. The most sever of them all could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code by using a malicious file.

“The most severe of these issues is a critical security vulnerability in Media framework that could enable a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process. The severity assessment is based on the effect that exploiting the vulnerability would possibly have on an affected device,” reads the security bulletin.Improvements for Pixel devices In addition to patching security flaws, the Android Security Patch for April 2019 update also improves the performance and reliability of supported Pixel devices. For Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL users, it improves the voice-unlocking performance for Google Assistant and the Wi-Fi connectivity during eSIM activation for some mobile carriers.

For some Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices, the update removes the screen flash when ambient display wakes. On the other hand, Pixel and Pixel XL users will notice better Bluetooth connectivity after installing the Android Security Patch for April 2019, which is now rolling out worldwide and will complete in the next few days.

It is recommended that you update your Android devices to Android Security Patch for April 2019 as soon as possible. To update, simply access the system updates section in the settings of your device. If you don’t see the update yet, try again in a few hours or days. Android Security Patch for April 2019 is available now for all Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3 XL users.
