Some Pixel XL owners are having issues installing the October OTA, Google is looking into it

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

This October's update isn't just about security patches, it also has some much-needed Bluetooth fixes. Unfortunately, some of us are having trouble actually installing this latest OTA. The difficulty seems to fall into two basic categories: those who haven't yet unenrolled from the beta and can't see the update, and those who can see the update but can't install it. The former is an easy fix (just exit the beta), but for those of us in the latter camp, Google is looking into it. 

Both Android Police's Artem and I ran into this issue on our Pixel XLs, and according to statements on Google's Product Forums, we aren't alone.

Mystery: Some Nexus Players on Android 8.0 Oreo are uploading hundreds of gigabytes of data

Monday, September 11th, 2017

If you've migrated your Nexus Player onto Android O, and you've noticed networking problems or sudden data cap issues, you're not alone. Some people, including our own Artem, have found that their Nexus Players are going a bit crazy, uploading hundreds of gigabytes of data for no apparent reason.

There's not a lot of information we can offer about this problem. We don't know what it could possibly be uploading to take up so much space/bandwidth, where it's being sent, or why it's happening.

SmartThings implements a fix for its recently buggy integration with Google Home

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

If you have a SmartThings hub and a Google Home, you may have noticed that the two haven't been playing nice together since July. The issue was brought to our attention when we covered the SmartThings Hub 50% off deal a couple of days ago, and as I understand it (I don't have an ST hub myself), it seems that many users noticed that devices added by SmartThings in Google Home either weren't operational anymore or that when they tried to do the integration for the first time, Google Home would import all their devices without giving them the choice to choose or exclude.

Motorola’s Z2 Force may also have the so-called “jelly effect” popularized by the OnePlus 5

Saturday, August 12th, 2017

It seems like Motorola's latest just can't catch a break. Following the unfortunate news about the hardiness of the ShatterSheild display, it turns out there may be another problem with the screen. The Moto Z2 Force may also suffer from the "jelly" effect which results in a slight distortion of the screen on certain animations.

That should sound pretty familiar, as it's the same issue the OnePlus 5's display has.

[You jelly?] OnePlus acknowledges scrolling “jelly” effect on OnePlus 5 screen, says it’s normal

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

OnePlus has finally made a statement about the reported "jelly" display issues. We reached out to them yesterday about the problem, and today we received a response from the company. Unfortunately for any users suffering the strange display distortion, OnePlus has stated that the effect, while isolated, is apparently a result of "natural variance in screens."

The full statement provided by OnePlus is below.

The OnePlus 5 uses the same level of high-quality components as all OnePlus devices, including the AMOLED display.

Google Voice notifications are broken for some, but Google is on the case

Google Voice notification bug hero

If you haven't been reliably receiving notifications for messages in Google Voice, you may not be alone. Some users at Google's Product Forums have been reporting that notifications from Google Voice don't always appear, and often don't show up until the app is opened and refreshed. Thankfully it seems that Google is on the case. If indicators for events like messages or voicemails in Google Voice do not show up in your notifications, perhaps it's worth taking a look at the threads over on Google's forums.
