Pixel devices have earlier faced issues relating to image transfer and LTE connectivity.
Keeping aside all the warm reception and commendable sales Google is witnessing with its Pixel devices, it doesn't seem to be a bug-free device. After LTE connectivity issues last month, some Pixel users are now reporting of a new camera freeze issue. A thread started by one of the users on community forums, the camera on Pixel and Pixel XL freezes with pink/purple verticle lines. The issue has taken place often enough, if not all the time, to make it a major issue.
One of the users tried wiping cache, data and even did a factory reset only to experience the issue again. Further, he claimed that even Safe Mode is also not a solution for this issue. After the initial bunch of users, the thread was soon flooded with other users reporting about the issue as well.
As per the forum thread, this issue generally happens when one is trying to click pictures in an area with poor signal reception. Moreover, when clicked with the Aeroplane Mode turned on, the issue seems to have solved.
On a good note, a Google representative commented that they will investigate the issue and come with a solution as soon as possible. The forum thread hasn't been updated since so we don't what really happened, post that. Nevertheless, we hope Google will address the issue quickly and release a fix as soon as possible.
Apart from this and LTE issues, last week another weird issue regarding images sent from an iPhone 7 plus to Pixel came up in the news.
On the other hand, Google has finally rolled out the 'Upcoming' tab feature to Google Search or Google App for Android.
The search engine giant also introduced 4K resolution option for some select movie titles available on Google Play Movies.
The app is only available for Android as of now but we expect Google to soon release it for iOS as well.
The latest update comes with a host of new features.
The update will begin rolling out today on both Android and iOS devices.
Despite coming with a hefty price tag, people in India as well as across the globe are buying the device.
Interestingly, this bug is only seen if the images are sent from an iPhone 7 Plus to a Pixel device and not vice versa.
Google has already released two rounds of developer preview for Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Pixel C tablet.
The link will be displayed both on Mobile as well as Web (PC) version of search and will display all the ATMs nearby after automatically detecting your location.
The app is available for both Android and iOS and saves resulting images in Google Photos.
