Below is the official changelog and the screenshot of the official Verizon update tracker:
This software update brings the latest Android 10 OS, with new features including Live Transcribe, Smart Reply, improved Gestures and Camera UX, and Focus Mode along with support for BYOD (“bring your own device”) when making the switch to Verizon from select carriers. Night Mode has been renamed to Dark Mode. The latest Android security patch is also included in this update.
Android 10 OS Update
Android 10 OS offers some of the newest ways to control your privacy, customize your phone, and get things done. It’s Android, just the way you want it.
With Sound Amplifier, your phone can boost sound, filter background noise, and fine tuned to your listening preferences. Whether talking to your best friend, watching TV, or listening to a lecture — just plug in your headphones and hear everything more clearly.
In Android 10, you get more than just suggested responses to your messages. You also get recommended actions. So, if a friend asks you out to dinner, your phone will suggest you text thumbs up. Then, it’ll also pull up directions right in Google Maps™. It even works in messaging apps like Signal.
Real-time transcriptions for the world around you. Now with sound events that show you when someone is clapping, a dog is barking, someone is whistling, and more.
Gestures are now quicker and more intuitive than ever. Go backwards and forwards, pull up the homescreen, and swipe up to see your open apps. All super smooth.
For getting in the zone and minimizing distractions. Turn on Focus mode with a single tap to pause apps that you’ve selected.
Notably, the update is being pushed via OTA in batches and will take some time in hitting all the units. However, you can always go ahead and check for the updates by heading to Home > Applications > Settings > About Device > Software updates.
