    Google Pixel and Pixel XL : Issues that will be fixed with future software updates

    Google moved into the premium smartphone space with their latest smartphone offerings, the Pixel and the Pixel XL.

If you are looking for the best that Android has to offer, it doesn’t get more Google than the Pixel and Pixel XL.

    However, as is the case with any smartphone or tablet, the Pixel and Pixel XL are not without their issues. If you have come across any of them, we’re here to help you out, with this roundup of some of the common problems that Pixel and Pixel XL owners face, and offer potential solutions on how to fix them!

    There are some problems that do not have any workarounds or solutions available, and the only option is to wait for a software update.

    • Camera issues: Quite a few users have come across the Halo effect problem, and now, Pixel owners are also seeing purple lines and bars across the viewfinder. This is software problem that Google is working on addressing and will be fixed with a future software update. Until then, you can use a third-party camera app that you can download from the Google Play Store.
    • Microphone issues: Some users have come across issues with the device microphone, with people at the other of the line unable to hear anything during calls. Toggling the speakerphone while on a call seems to work, and a reboot seems to temporarily fix the problem, but this is another software issue that will be fixed.
    • Bluetooth issues: Users had a lot of trouble getting their smartphone to connect to their cars, Bluetooth speakers, smartwatches, and more. The Bluetooth problems appear to have been addressed in the Android 7.1.1 update that is rolling out right now.
