Google says the Pixelbook’s random reboot bug has been fixed

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

The Google Pixelbook is a pretty fantastic laptop, but every tech product has a few bugs. Recently, some owners have been reporting a nasty reboot bug, where the Pixelbook will randomly restart while in use. The frequency varies from report to report, with one even saying it occurred every 1-10 minutes. Yikes.

Thankfully, the glitch has now been fixed, at least according to Google. Kevin Kirk, a support manager for the company, left the following response on several threads about the issue:

Hi all,

Sorry for the inconvenience, our engineers have found the cause and fixed it.

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.

[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.

Saturday, February 24th, 2018

Over the past few weeks, many owners of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have reported battery drain problems. The February security update appears to be the likely culprit, but since so many Android components are updated outside of system upgrades, it's impossible to know for sure.
