After several reports about the latest Bluetooth issue on the Google Pixel, the company has now reportedly fixed the issue through a service-side update. Last month, just after Google rolled out the February security patch for the Google Pixel, several complaints from different users started piling up related to random switch on and off of Bluetooth on their handset. Fortunately, Google addressed the issue soon after and now has rolled out an update.
Note that, if you own a Google Pixel device and was facing the said issue, you don’t need to do anything on your part. The service-side update generally happens via Google Play Services and the latest Bluetooth fix might have landed with the latest Google Play Services update earlier this week. Now if you are still facing the issue, we would request you to wait a little longer as Google Play Services update can take some time to reach all the users.
However, this is not the first time Google Pixel has been in the news for the wrong reasons. Previously, the handset has been under scrutiny for an audio distortion issue which would be fairly prominent when the volume out from Pixel’s audio out was set to maximum. In another issue, some users reported that abnormal shutdowns and battery drain. Not only this, our own Google Pixel unit started behaving weird after a recent improvement update. The unit we have started hanging every now and then making the device unusable for the most part of the day.
Meanwhile, the rumour world has already started tapping the successor to the Google Pixel. As per the latest report, Google is working on three smartphones for this calendar year codenamed – Muskie, Walleye and Taimen. The name Muskie might represent the Pixel, while the Walleye might be Google Pixel XL. Both the phone are reported to be the sequel of the Pixel and Pixel XL and might boast almost similar display. However, the third smartphone, as reported by Droid Life, codenamed as Taimen might carry a screen size larger than existing Pixel XL.
