Google Assistant's New Feature Can ID Songs

Google shares 10 tips for capturing great portraits on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

The latest issue now attributed to the Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL is a Bluetooth one.

The thing to note here is that the "screen flashing" is not an isolated issue and a number of users joined to comment about the problem on Pixel User Community on Google Product forums.

There seems to be no end to the long list of issues related to the new Pixel 2 devices. They also pack some features that are exclusive to Android phones (Google Assistant and Fast Pair) and others that are exclusive to just the Pixel lineup: Google Translate.

Against this backdrop, Abadi said on Saturday that losses from the war against ISIL has cost Iraq $100bn so far. Two Iraqi infantry divisions and Sunni tribal forces are carrying out the operation in Anbar province.

Talking about the microphone issue first, some Pixel 2 owners have reported unresponsive microphones during calls or while using voice assistant. When we tested for the issue, for the most part Google Assistant seemed to be working fine (i.e. Google Assistant could be activated via the hotword, questions could be asked, and responses were received - all through the headset).

Pixel 2 users have been complaining on social media about the device's Bluetooth overall, although it's not clear if the issues are related. People are reporting an issue with the display flashing when it is switched off or on. According to a post on Google Product Forums, some users are reporting that the Pixel 2 XL's screen flashes when they unlock their device. Google earlier this week started rolling out a software update to fix hardware issues plaguing its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. When users make a call the other person on the other side can not hear them.

For some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users, the microphone malfunction issue can be fixed by blowing up in the speaker which may sound old school but until Google responds, this may be the best bet. "Doing this made my microphone work again and it continues to work when it goes out". I was able to replicate the issue by blowing into the bottom speaker. Yes.
