Own pixel? You are a few taps away from Android 11

Open the Settings app on your phone and tap, at least, on the Pixel phone system > Advanced > system update > check for Update. If your phone does not update immediately, be patient. As always happens with Google, the update is slowly ending, so it may take a few days before it shows up on your phone – you keep checking it.

Once your phone receives the update, follow the prompts to install it as you would any other update. I suggest that your phone be plugged into the charger and have a strong Wi-Fi connection to ensure that the process is as smooth as possible.
