At the start of this week, Google posted images of the OTA files for the latest Android 8.1.0 however, the update we believe has started rolling out. Especially for those who enrolled in the Android Beta Program
Krustylab can confirm that the update has been rolled out and one of our in-house developers, who owns a Google Pixel XL confirmed he got the update early this morning and installed it straight away.
