Google Pixel: Even Android 7.1.2 Can’t Help This!
Google’s Pixel duo took the world by storm when it was released late last year. These are the first devices made completely under Google with no help from any other manufacturers – unlike the Nexus series.
The main difference between the Pixel and Nexus devices is the fact that Google’s latest come with exclusive software features that most Nexus devices won’t be getting. One example is the Google Assistant which is programmed right into the Pixel’s software and accessible via the home button.
While the Pixel device, fitted with a 2770 mAh battery, sports a 5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, the Pixel XL device, with a larger 3450 mAh battery, features a 5.5-inch display with 2560 x 1440 resolution.
These duo arrived bearing some pretty top-notch specs so it wasn’t all that surprising that these devices came with a pretty hefty price tag.
However, it looks like not every owner is happy with their Pixel device. A survey through numerous Reddit threads show that some Pixel owners have been experiencing a frustrating problem with their Bluetooth connectivity.
These folks report that music seems to skipping and crackling when the device is connected via Bluetooth during music playback in the car.
Although the device can be connected over Bluetooth, only the phone functions are accessible. If the users want to listen to music from their device, they will have to enlist the help of the AUX jack in the car.
Other Redditors claimed that this issue persisted despite them upgrading to the latest Android 7.1.2 update. Some have gotten so frustrated with this issue that they’re even considering purchasing the Samsung Galaxy S8 and abandoning their Pixel device.
Have you been experiencing this frustrating issue as well? Is there any way to improve Pixel’s Bluetooth connection? Well, drop us comment below!
