This small update addresses the problem where creating a private space on a device for the first time removed app icons from the home screen. The OTA update, which is 11-12 MB in size on a Google Pixel 8 and Tablet, is currently being rolled out.

Usage Tips and Update Size Discrepancies

Google provided some tips for using the private space feature, including instructions on how to retrieve it if hidden, how to reset it if the unlock factor is forgotten, and how to install a private space version of an app by long pressing the app icon and tapping 'Install in private.'
