Google Pixel Watch is getting a new software update with the January 2023 security patch. The update fixes a problem with third-party watch faces timing out after 15 minutes, even with the always-on display turned on. This is the second sequential update for the Pixel Watch after the December patch. The last update fixes several issues related to calls, watch faces, and Fitbit.


The software version of this update is RWD9.220429.073.J1, which is available for the variant of watches available in Japan and Taiwan.

To check for the latest software update on the Pixel Watch, go to Settings > System > System update. Remember, Pixel watch must be connected and have at least a 50% charge to install the update. This update will come over the next week in phases depending on carrier and device.

Google Docs Voice Typing

According to 9to5google, the upcoming update for the Google Docs Voice Typing will “reduce transcription errors and minimize lost audio,” but Google doesn’t provide any specific examples.


Google Docs voice typing will also get “expanded availability to most major browsers.” Currently, this feature is “only available in Chrome browsers” and does not work in Safari.

As per the information, the update is rolling out now, and will reach out to more users in the coming months. Google Docs is also rolling out non-printing character support. To enable it on the web, open View > Show non-printing characters.
