More Google Pixel 2 Problems: Google Assistant Not Working With Bluetooth Headphones

Ever since Google started selling the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in the market, things have gone bad to worst.

Some users have pointed that the screen flashing on the Pixel 2 XL doesn't happen every time but does occur frequently. "It does not work when doing normal phone calls and in assistant, voice recognition or voice recording apps". Google Now has enabled users to search for song info since 2015, but it seems as though Google Assistant is on its way to replace it. Still, if that's no issue for you and you don't mind the Pixel 2's bezels or the Pixel 2 XL's problems, head on over to Verizon to grab either one by using the Source links below. The thing to note here is that this is not the only new problem reported by Pixel 2 XL users.

There are some users who have claimed that changing the settings especially turning the Ambient Display off and on again does fix the issue. Due to the number of comments that have been added to the post since then however, including ones from today and this week, it seems evident it is still a current issue. Google is yet to acknowledge the issue but we can expect some sort of software patch to fix the issue.

The Pixel Buds are supported by any Android device running Marshmallow or above and also it supports Apple iPhones running on iOS 10 or higher.
