2016 Pixel XL owners experiencing issues with quick chargers after Android Pie update

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

Over the past few weeks, some owners of the 2016 Pixel XL have reported problems using quick chargers on Android P. For most of that time, Android P was still in beta, so bugs were to be expected. Unfortunately, issues with quick charging are still present in the final 9.0 release.

As you may already know, all Pixel phones use USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) for quick charging. Any plug/cable/computer/battery certified for USB-PD should charge the phone at a rate of 5V/3A, and Android will show a 'Charging rapidly' message on the lock screen.

[Update: US English only] First-gen Pixel’s Overview screen allows for text selection on Android 9 Pie

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

A cool little feature in the Android P Developer Previews was that you could select text and images from any item on the Overview screen. Unfortunately, it stopped working on original Pixel devices — intentionally, it seems, as Google support marked an Issue Tracker complaint about it "Won't Fix (Intended Behavior)." But the feature has now made it to the full release of Android 9 Pie, even on 2016 Pixels.

In case you don't remember, the features in Google's new Digital Wellbeing suite are meant to encourage what CEO Sundar Pichai called "JOMO," for the "joy of missing out"—as opposed to the modern social terror of "FOMO"/fear of missing out.

Monday, August 6th, 2018

Today is the big day—after months of beta builds and speculation, Android 9 Pie is rolling out to Pixels (and at least one other phone). You don't need to wait for the Pixel OTA, though. Google is ready to go with OTA files and full system images for the 2016 and 2017 Pixel devices.

The first official build of Android 9 has build number PPR1.180610.009 for most of us.

Google serves up a hot slice of Android 9 Pie, as P-name finally goes official for today’s public release

Monday, August 6th, 2018

For Android fans who like living on the bleeding edge, the last few months have been a whirlwind of activity. Android P made first contact back in March, and we were quick to fire up our Pixels and install that early Developer Preview. Not only did we see more and more features land through the next few DP releases, but also had unprecedented access to these early builds thanks to support from manufacturers like OnePlus and Essential.

LineageOS 15.1 now available for the 2016 Pixel and Pixel XL

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

The Nexus devices of old were some of the best phones when it came to custom ROMs, and while the Pixels are still popular options for software mods, CyanogenMod/LineageOS has never offered official builds. I'm not sure the exact reason why, but I assume it had something to do with the A/B partitioning scheme, or perhaps there was not a maintainer available to work on it.

Regardless of why it wasn't available before, official LineageOS 15.1 (Android 8.1) builds are now live for the 2016 Google Pixel (sailfish) and Pixel XL (marlin).
