The Google Pixel 3 is currently in line to receive the upcoming Android 11 update which is expected to bring a bunch of new features to the device, however, custom ROMs such as LineageOS 17.1 bring a lot more functions and settings for users to play around with.

Thus, no matter how good a stock ROM from an OEM is, there’s always a better custom ROM lurking in the shadows. The Android 10-based LineageOS 17.1 update released back in April and brought support for a bunch of devices.

But sadly, no Google Pixel devices were supported with the release. Well, that’s now changing since the Google Pixel 3 has now received official support for LineageOS 17.1. At present, the custom ROM is only available for the Google Pixel 3. However, the build for the Pixel 3 XL isn’t far off.

The imminent arrival of LineageOS 17.1 for the Pixel 3 duo was spotted on Reddit because of the merged commit in the LineageOS Gerrit Code Review. While the build for the Pixel 3 was successful, the Pixel 3 XL build 20200811 failed.

Thus, Pixel 3 XL users may have to wait a few more days until the build is ready and working. Pixel 3 users, on the other hand, can check out the new LineageOS 17.1 ROM on their device by clicking on the download link provided below:

  • Device: Pixel 3

Of course, all other details regarding the LineageOS 17.1 update for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL can be accessed via the GitHub page. That being said, the Pixel 3 duo aren’t the only two new devices to get LineageOS 17.1.


The Poco M2 Pro has also got an unofficial LineageOS 17.1 build thanks to contributions from a few developers who have managed to port a build over to the device. Thus, in case you do not wish to wait for an official LineageOS 17.1 build for the Poco M2 Pro, you can try out the unofficial port via the link below:
