Google Pixel 2 AR Stickers Ready To Go

Google Pixel 2 AR Stickers Ready To Go

We all know that Google's Pixel 2 comes sans-headphone jack, following in the footsteps of Apple and other phone companies that don't have the same power over headlines. Google has surprisingly stripped its Pixel lineup of the 3.5 mm headphone jack after heavily advertising its existence on the first Pixel iteration a year ago. Google, on the other hand, suggested that users should restart their phones in safe mode to make sure that no other app is running in the background.

After a few weeks of that it stopped working completely, and the phone doesn't seem to recognize it because music only plays through the speakers.

Google Pixel 2 XL users are reporting delay in fingerprint unlock after installing Android 8.1 Oreo update. "Am I missing something here?" said one of the user. It's been speculated that some Pixel 2 units may have simply been shipped with faulty adapters.

If this is not a hardware-related issue, it might have something to do with the software.

According to reports, several people have experienced this problem and have contacted Google for a replacement adapter.

Idan, 27, grew up in Baghdad during the war with the United States. 'This is Miss Iraq and she's wonderful , ' the Israeli wrote. She didn't place in the Miss Universe pageant, but she's doubled down on using the selfie with Miss Israel to promote peace.

Another solution is to enable developer mode, as pointed out by Phone Arena. Once that's done, users will go back to Settings, tap System Developer options Networking Select USB configuration and then select Audio Source. His two cents? Because the USB-C port handles many different tasks, when you plug in the adapter, it is acting as though you plugged in a charger.

Google is now rolling out a "Hey, Google" option for Assistant, which should, theoretically, fix this issue.

The second-generation Pixel phones have had some struggles. If it is indeed a software problem, Google could just send out an OTA (over the air) software update to fix it. Ever since the update started rolling out, users have been taking it to the forums about the problems they are facing on their phones after updating to Android 8.1.

Given the reliability of a tried and true technology like the 3.5mm headphone jack, having the USB-C replacement not work is understandably frustrating.
