Google Finally Addresses the Bluetooth Issue on Pixel and Pixel XL

If you recall, nearly a month ago, several users of Google Pixel and Pixel XL started complaining about a weird bug that was causing them Bluetooth connectivity issues on their phones. As the complaint number increased, Google officially acknowledged that something has broken in the February security patch update.

The search giant, however, was silent all these days and today, a user has posted on the forums page of Google saying that the company has addressed the issue. He quoted as ” I just got word that Google has just finished putting a fix in place for this issue on our end — no downloads or updates to your devices or apps are needed. We’d love to hear feedback from this group. If you have a chance to test your Bluetooth connection, please let us know how it goes.”

That said, there’s no update pushed from Google from his words. So, the issue has been fixed from the server side. By chance, if you receive any update to the Google Play Services, don’t hesitate to hit update right away as that might solve the Bluetooth woes in your phone.

For the uninitiated, several owners of Pixel and Pixel XL raised their voice against Bluetooth connectivity issues after updating their phone with the February security patch. The actual problem was the Bluetooth connection in the phones automatically disables without any notice, and the user has to reenable it from the settings app to function it normally, which was annoying.

Finally, Google has fixed the issue, but it’s been a long time since the original issue raised. Do you own a Pixel or Pixel XL? Let us know if the issue has solved or not by commenting below.
