While the March 2023 software update includes numerous bug fixes and improvements for Pixel Watch users, the items mentioned below are intended to be user facing changes of note in this release.

Touch
  • Optimizations have been added to improve sensitivity of touch screen behavior.
Settings
  • Battery saver enable/disable single tap support in QSS has been fully enabled in this release.
Alarms
  • In the coming weeks, a fix will be rolled out via PlayStore to update the Clock app that addresses some alarms which have been having a delayed or false start.
  • Ensure Auto-update apps is selected in Play Store > Settings on your watch and you will get this update once it’s available when your watch is on charger and connected to Wi-Fi.
As highlighted in our March Feature Drop post, these features are now also available with this software update:

Settings
  • Mono-audio which limits the disorientation of split-audio
  • New color-correction and greyscale modes that better optimize the display for a wider range of vision preferences.
