[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.

YouTube TV goes ded in the middle of fancy soccer game

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Yes, you read that right: YouTube TV has gone down amidst a major sports game yet again. This last happened during Game 2 of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals, and it seems like Google's streaming service just isn't built to handle all of the World Cup fans either.

You'd think that Google would try to strengthen its service before such a big game, but apparently not.

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.

Google to fix Android Auto’s intermittent failure to start with February security patch

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

For a system that is meant to be used while you're in a car, Android Auto has a few too many bugs. One of the most recent ones that has arisen is Android Auto's intermittent failure to even start when you get in the car and plug your phone in. Google has addressed this issue and says that the fix will be rolling out with the next security patch.

For some, Android Auto just isn't starting at times when the user's phone is plugged into their car.

Google is looking into Android 8.1 lockscreen swipe issues on Pixel devices

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

I'd wager that most owners of Pixel phones use the fingerprint sensors on the back to unlock their phones, but there are circumstances in which using the backup PIN, pattern, or password is necessary. Many Pixel owners, myself included, have noticed that it's become rather difficult to swipe the lockscreen up on Android 8.1 Oreo. Google is aware of the problem and is looking into it.

The most prominent issue is having to swipe all the way to the top of the screen to reveal the PIN/pattern/password input, but that seems to only be because it's the most-used action.

Google just fixed a year-old Android Auto bug that caused users to see temperatures in Fahrenheit instead of Celsius, and vice versa

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

The love story between Google and bugs is one that will seemingly never end. Case in point: the company has just solved a problem first reported 13 months ago on its Google Product Forums concerning the incorrect temperature scale being shown on Android Auto head units.

Basically, people in the US (one of the only places in the world that uses Fahrenheit) randomly began seeing temperatures in Celsius on their Android Auto head units, whereas users overseas in countries like the UK, Canada, Italy, and so on had Fahrenheit pop up on their screens.

The Google Home Mini may not be a very powerful speaker, but it's still a speaker that people use to listen to music with.

Google hasn’t actually enabled Pixel Visual Core in 8.1 Oreo DP1, updates docs to say it’ll come in DP2

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

The Pixel Visual Core is one of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL's selling points, and it was supposed to have been enabled in Android 8.1 Developer Preview 1. However, developers looking to try it out were unable to do so, eventually realizing that Google had neglected to enable it for the public preview. Now, the company has updated its documents to say that Visual Core will be able to be tried out in 8.1 Developer Preview 2.
