Google begins shipping wireless Pixel Buds

One user said in the community website that he conducted an experiment to prove that the edges of the Pixel 2 XL screen do not register touches. With Fused Video Stabilization on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, you no longer have to carefully place the phone before recording, hold it firmly over the entire recording session, or carry a gimbal mount everywhere. Several users have complained on Google's official forum and some have even documented it in a video.

Google's own Assistant-enabled headphones, the Pixel Buds, will be released and shipped soon. "There is a fairly large area in the bottom right corner that is unresponsive, and the taps aren't registered", a Pixel 2 XL user wrote while explaining the issue on the support forum. However, tapping on the edges is not always detected by the handset.

There have been multiple bugs reports in Google's PIxel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices since their launch. If the problem does lie with the hardware itself, then it would a much bigger headache for both Google and the consumers.


He also thinks that the fault lies with Google's accidental touch protection software.

Google's Community Manager Orrin Hancock responded to the unresponsive edge issue and stated that the product team had been investigating the problem and a future OTA update would address the flaw. He revealed that Google is now working on a fix to solve the problem.

Earlier, this week, Google had issued updates to some of the bugs.
