Google started testing 5G support for Pixel phones in India in January this year and released the QPR beta 2 update. With the success of the beta testing, the company is now rolling out the March Pixel feature drop, which brings various fixes aside from 5G support for the subcontinent.
This update makes the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro the Pixel 6a as well as being connected to Jio and Airtel’s 5G networks. After installing, 5G should automatically be enabled (once the phone is connected to the network, you should see “5G” in the status bar).
5G now officially supports Pixel 7, 7 Pro and 6a in India
If you’re curious about other improvements in the March feature drop, check out Google’s post. This includes faster Night Sight on the Pixel 7 duo, Health Connect, fall detection on the Pixel Watch, and some features enabled on older models.
One of the more interesting changes lets you have two eSIMs enabled simultaneously on the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. However, this is only available for some operators and we have not confirmed whether Jio and Airtel are among them.
