The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have received good reviews at launch but there are some issues that Google has been ironing out ever since the devices were launched. The memory management issue was first spotted about a week ago and Google has acknowledged it now. The company says that the Pixel 3 memory issue fix will be released in the “coming weeks.”
Many users complained about the aggressive memory management on the devices. They found when trying to switch between apps that the app had to be reloaded since the handset’s software killed it to prioritize memory management.
This made it clear that Google needed to fine tune the software further so that it wasn’t as aggressive in killing off apps in the background. It would otherwise be quite difficult to multitask on this flagship device which should allow users to switch back and forth between apps effortlessly.
Google has confirmed to 9to5Google that it’s going to release a fix for this issue “in the coming weeks.” The spokesperson confirmed that this fix is going to “keep background apps from being prematurely closed.”
There’s no specific release timeframe so we just have the vague “coming weeks” statement to go on at this point in time. At least it’s an acknowledgment on the company’s part that it’s working on a fix for this Pixel 3 memory management issue.
