Some Google Pixel and Pixel XL owners have been facing an issue for the past few months that causes their smartphone to randomly freeze without reason. Users can’t seem to figure out what’s causing the handset to freeze and then they have to perform a complete reboot in order to start using the device again. It’s a nuisance that they can surely do without. Google has finally fixed the Pixel freezing issue by releasing a new update for the handsets.
Google says that its new over-the-air software update for the Pixel and Pixel XL “should address many of the freezing issues that have been reported.”
Even though the fix was posted to the user community by Google’s Community Manager, there doesn’t seem to be a complete confidence in the fix to solve this matter once and for all.
“Freezing and general device performance issues can be caused by many different things, so please continue to update this post with your individual experiences after accepting the June security OTA,” he added.
Users complain that this issue affects their unit randomly and not while using a particular app or performing a certain task. They then have to either wait for the device to go to a lockscreen or force a reboot by pressing down on the power button.
Hopefully, this new over-the-air update that Google has released for the Pixel and Pixel XL should fix things. If it doesn’t, Google will have to make sure that this bug is taken care of.
