Google has just issued another update for its Nexus S smartphone, which brings the version number up to 2.3.6. And while that kind of change might make you believe that the update is quite a big deal, it's actually pretty minor.

Android 2.3.6 is a bugfix release, which comes to solve the voice search issues that have plagued the Nexus S recently. Many users reported voice search would activate by itself, while they were using some other app and you can see how this could be terribly annoying. Luckily, Google acted quickly and the healing process has started.

Users in Canada have reportedly been among the first to get the update, while its availability elsewhere is still a mystery. Still, there weren't that many Nexus S units sold, so it shouldn't take too long for the Android 2.3.6 to reach them all.

If you happen to be among the luckily ones who were already offered the opportunity and took the jump, do not hesitate to share how it went in the comments section below.
