Some Google Play app listings are incorrectly showing as beta versions

Monday, April 9th, 2018

A new version started rolling out to the Play Store on the web last month and the reception has been decidedly mixed. Screenshots are now viewable in a lightbox, meaning they're larger, but scrolling can be slow and you can't use the arrows on your keyboard to cycle through them. Oh, and getting out of the lightbox did mean finding the tiny arrow in the top left rather than just clicking outside of the image, although that appears to have been fixed already.

Google claims Pixel 2 MMS issues fixed despite continued reports

Saturday, March 31st, 2018

According to a statement made by a Google employee on the Pixel product forums, a somewhat widespread problem with receiving MMS messages on the Pixel 2 XL has been resolved. But if you ask the people that claimed to be affected, you'll get a very different answer.

We had heard some reports for this problem ourselves, which manifests as an inability to receive or download MMS messages sent to a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL.

Android P DP1 is breaking the ‘OEM Unlock’ toggle for some, but there’s an easy fix

Thursday, March 29th, 2018

After the Android P DP1 hit, a few people reported running into difficulty unlocking their bootloader if it wasn't already prior to flashing the developer preview. Turns out, there is a fix, and you don't have to wipe your device. Simply disabling whatever lockscreen security setting you might have is enough to fix things. 

The problem, in this case, is pretty simple. The "OEM unlocking" toggle in Developer options that governs your ability to unlock the bootloader in Fastboot might appear to work, but it actually just bugs out if you try to use it.

[Update: Fix in coming weeks] Android 8.1 update for 2016 Pixel XL causes a potentially dangerous overcurrent charging bug

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

Generally speaking, updates remove bugs, but in the case of Google's 2016 Pixel XL, a new problem was introduced with the Android 8.1 update this January. When charging in certain circumstances, the OG Pixel XL will (dangerously) attempt to pull up to 40% more current than it has negotiated from the charger, repeatedly entering and leaving a charging state as the charger shuts off due to overcurrent protection.

Android 8.1 update for 2016 Pixel XL causes a potentially dangerous overcurrent charging bug

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

Generally speaking, updates remove bugs, but in the case of Google's 2016 Pixel XL, a new problem was introduced with the Android 8.1 update this January. When charging in certain circumstances, the OG Pixel XL will (dangerously) attempt to pull up to 40% more current than it has negotiated from the charger, repeatedly entering and leaving a charging state as the charger shuts off due to overcurrent protection. So if you've noticed your Pixel XL recently flashing "charging rapidly" multiple times after being plugged into the stock charger, that's why. 

At first glance, the specific circumstances required to trigger the problem might seem unlikely, but if you're using the stock charger, they're guaranteed.

When the Oreo update landed for Huawei's Watch 2 back in February, many reported that it was disabling Google Pay (then called Android Pay). One month and one rebranding later, this issue seems to have been fixed. There are reports that something in the last few days has re-enabled Google's rebranded NFC payments for the Watch 2. 

It doesn't seem to be working for everyone, but reports of success with Google Pay on the device are widespread.

[Update: Google is working on a fix] Downloading Motion Photos via Google’s Backup and Sync is broken for some

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

For many people, especially those of us here at Android Police, Google's various backup tools are an integral part of our daily workflow. Frankly, I'd have to entirely restructure how I do things without the convenience of Google Photos and Google Drive/Backup and Sync.
