OnePlus 6 and 6T wrecking audio quality by using the wrong mic in some apps like Snapchat and WhatsApp

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

The OnePlus 6T may have been our favorite phone of 2018, but it wasn't without its problems. Recently, we reported that OnePlus phones appear to be resetting battery optimization settings randomly, but it appears that OnePlus 6 and 6T may also have some good, old-fashioned microphone troubles, too: Many are experiencing issues with call and recording quality in third-party apps like Snapchat and WhatsApp.

Reports are widespread, going back to the middle of last year.

We have a couple of tips from affected users, and plenty more have hit the "Me too!" button on this support page. Adding reminders either by voice or typing appears to work as expected, and entries are showing up in the reminders list, but a notification never comes.

OnePlus phones are discarding Android’s battery optimization whitelist, a problem as more apps update to target Oreo

Friday, January 18th, 2019

Usually, OnePlus is praised for its Oxygen OS software, which offers a light-touch, near-stock experience — at least, visually. Turns out, the company has been making some deeper changes to Android on its phones, and not all of them are for the best. Right now one of the most frustrating parts of OnePlus ownership for many is the company's aggressive battery optimization settings, which can kill apps you may want to be kept open.

Latest Google beta update fixes At A Glance widget weather

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

Over the weekend, an update to the Google app beta accidentally broke weather for the At A Glance Widget, affecting Pixel owners, some third-party launcher users, and anyone who manually added the widget since that became an option. Thankfully, an update (v9.0.4) which is rolling out today fixes the problem.

Again, I'd like to reiterate that only those who were in the beta program for the Google app were affected.

Missing the weather in your At A Glance widget? Latest Google beta (v.9.0) broke it

Monday, January 14th, 2019

If you've noticed that the so-called At A Glance widget — a stock part of the Pixel experience that's also available as a standalone widget and built into some third-party launchers — has been missing the weather for the last few days, you aren't alone. It turns out a major version beta update to the Google app is responsible for the loss in functionality — though only those who sideloaded the update or are in the beta testing program should be affected.

[Update: Server-side fix rolling out] Chrome’s pop-up blocker is going haywire if you’re using certain extensions

Friday, January 11th, 2019

If you've noticed today that Chrome for desktop is blocking new tabs as if they were pop-up ads, you aren't alone. It seems Google may have rolled out a server-side experiment that, when combined with a handful of different extensions, results in the anomalous, over-aggressive behavior on the part of the browser. Reports are widespread, and for now, the only workarounds are to disable the extensions that can trigger the issue, or pass an additional parameter to disable the experiment when launching Chrome.

[Update x2: T-Mobile statement] Latest T-Mobile OnePlus 6T update breaks Google Play certification for some

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

The newest OnePlus 6T update pushed out by T-Mobile appeared to be pretty bland, with only support for an "additional domestic roaming partner" in the changelog. However, according to a number of disgruntled users on Reddit, the update is breaking Google Play certification on the device.

Understandably, owners are not pleased, since this stops services such as Google Pay from working on the 6T.
