[Update: Google responds] Google still hasn’t fixed the Pixel 2’s 8-month-old panorama issue, so someone made a workaround (root required)

Friday, July 13th, 2018

As we all know, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL use the same camera hardware. But while the Pixel 2 XL hasn't had any major camera issues (at least recently), the Pixel 2 has been having problems with its infinity focus point essentially since launch, leading to blurry panoramas.

As we all know, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL use the same camera hardware. But while the Pixel 2 XL hasn't had any major camera issues (at least recently), the Pixel 2 has been having problems with its infinity focus point essentially since launch, leading to blurry panoramas. It's been eight months since the issue was first reported, but because Google still hasn't fixed it, an owner decided to take things into his own hands.

Some G Suite users aren’t able to send messages through Assistant anymore

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

The blows keep on coming for G Suite users. Week by week, the features that they enjoy with their account seem to disappear or stop working. Last month, redeeming codes on Google Play was affected, then they lost the ability to rate apps and content. July is kicking things further as multiple reports have surfaced of users getting errors when trying to send a message with Assistant.

When someone with a G Suite account tries to send a message through Assistant on their phone, they get the error shown above: "Sorry, I can't send emails from this account." This happens whether they're sending a text or an email — yes, the error message mentions "emails" in both cases.

Ok Google voice detection has been broken on the Nexus 6 for nearly two months

Monday, June 25th, 2018

The whale known as the Nexus 6 hasn't been in the news for some time, but a pretty annoying bug has been plaguing owners for almost two months now. "Ok Google" voice detection basically isn't working, showing the Voice Match setup page anytime the launch phrase is said.

Any time a Nexus 6 hears "Ok Google," it'll bring you to the "Access your Assistant with Voice Match" setup page, which prompts you to record three recordings of your voice.

[Update: Rolling out in June OTA] Google has a fix for Pixel 2 XL proximity sensor issues, expect it ‘in the coming months’

Monday, June 4th, 2018

Back in October, we reported on a change in the Android 8.1 release that made the proximity sensor behave differently. Unlike before, it wouldn't turn Ambient Display off when you covered the sensor, something we saw even in 8.0 for the newer Pixel 2s. That may or may not have been intentional, but it seems there were also other issues relating to the proximity sensor in 8.1, more about which you can read in this mega thread on the Pixel User Community forum.

Google Assistant screen search isn’t working for some

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Long before Google Lens could be used to understand text and objects in photos you take, a feature called Now on Tap was introduced to analyze what was on your screen and bring you relevant search results relating to what it found. Of course, Google Now is no longer, and Now on Tap has morphed into a screen search function as part of the Google Assistant. It appears to be broken for some people at the moment, however.

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Android 8.1 Oreo has rolled out to both the standard and Android One versions of the Moto X4 by now, but the update has brought with it a pretty major issue: nonfunctional USB transfer. That means that Android Auto and ADB, among other things, are currently not working. Luckily, there's somewhat of a workaround, as well as a fix on the way.

Countless threads on the Google Product Forums, Motorola Community, and XDA Forums have been created to discuss the issue.
