Google’s reportedly fixed the Bluetooth connectivity bug on the Pixel and Pixel XL

If you’ve been experiencing a bug on your Pixel or Pixel XL preventing you from activating Bluetooth, you’ll be pleased to here that Google has made some “server-side changes” to fix the issue.

While it’s unknown what caused the glitch, it’s believed that it spawned from last month’s security patch. With that in mind, it’s great to see Google sort it out in such a timely manner.

It probably won’t be smiles all round for Pixel and Pixel XL owners

After hearing this news, it probably won’t be smiles all round for Pixel and Pixel XL owners, as some are still waiting for the firm to replace handsets with faulty microphones.

As of March 9, Google took responsibility for the hardware-related problem, which dates back to December, and agreed to offer affected customers a replacement under warranty.

There’s a catch, though. The company can’t guarantee the units it’s sending out won’t have the same issue — so if your new one develops the glitch, you’ll need to return it again.
