2016 Pixel XL owners experiencing issues with quick chargers after Android Pie update

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

Over the past few weeks, some owners of the 2016 Pixel XL have reported problems using quick chargers on Android P. For most of that time, Android P was still in beta, so bugs were to be expected. Unfortunately, issues with quick charging are still present in the final 9.0 release.

As you may already know, all Pixel phones use USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) for quick charging. Any plug/cable/computer/battery certified for USB-PD should charge the phone at a rate of 5V/3A, and Android will show a 'Charging rapidly' message on the lock screen.

Google Home playback issues with Play Music purchases have apparently been fixed

Monday, August 6th, 2018

Slightly over a year ago, an update was pushed to the Google Home that allowed users to play purchased tunes from Play Music. Issues with the feature cropped up almost immediately, and Google engineers have been going back and forth with users since. At long last, the company says it has finally fixed all playback issues.

The main support thread for the issue has nearly 900 replies at this point, and Emily from Google today responded with this message:

I have some good news regarding this feature.

[Update: Next update will fix] Some OnePlus 6 displays flicker in bright light with adaptive brightness enabled

Saturday, August 4th, 2018

In the last couple of weeks, I noticed my own OnePlus 6 was having a bit of trouble when I was outdoors. If I went to check missed messages or train schedules on a sunny day, I'd notice the display seemed to flicker spastically between two different brightness levels.

Chrome 68 Beta bug gives the tab switcher a very basic look, but it should be temporary

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

According to several reports we've received over the past couple of weeks, a bug appears to be happening for Chrome 68 Beta users that transforms their neat card-based tab switcher into a super basic list of open tabs. If you're affected, you only need to give it some time, it should revert back to the regular switcher after a day or two.

The layout these users are seeing is nothing out of the ordinary.

[Update: Pulled] Latest Google app beta (v8.14.12) repeatedly crashing for many

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

Developer previews aren't always the most stable, and they aren't meant to be. They are the process by which a stable is created. Because of that, sometimes it's possible to run into a few issues when using them, and it appears many are seeing a repeated force close problem with the latest version of the Google app beta (v8.14.12) on Android P.

Developer previews aren't always the most stable, and they aren't meant to be. They are the process by which a stable is created. Because of that, sometimes it's possible to run into a few issues when using them, and it appears many are running a repeated force close problem with the latest version of the Google app beta (v8.14.12) on Android P.

The offending update started rolling out yesterday, and it isn't a simple case of having sideloaded the wrong version.

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

In the last couple of weeks, I noticed my own OnePlus 6 was having a bit of trouble when I was outdoors. If I went to check missed messages or train schedules on a sunny day, I'd notice the display seemed to flicker spastically between two different brightness levels. I pushed it out of my mind, assuming I imagined it, but according to reports compiled together by the folks at PiunikaWeb, I'm not alone.

Home screen Google search bar not showing history or suggestions for some Pixel users

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018

The once-handy home screen Google search bar is acting up on Pixel devices. Many users, including some here at Android Police, are experiencing an annoying glitch that causes the bar to not show search history or suggestions of any kind.

Reports have also cropped up on Reddit. The issue is confirmed to affect the first-generation Pixel XL, as well as both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL (and if it's happening on all those, chances are good it's happening on the smaller first-gen model, too), on both Android Oreo 8.1 and Android P Developer Preview 4.
