The MOST Annoying Thing About Google Home, The Pixel 2 & Google Assistant

The MOST Annoying Thing About Google Home, The Pixel 2 & Google Assistant

Meanwhile, a YouTube posted by SertNeverdie SpeedForce showcases that there was a delay of about one to 1.5 seconds on Pixel 2 XL running Android 8.1 Oreo, while the other device unlocked nearly instantaneously.

Woes for Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners seem endless, as multiple users have posted on the Pixel User Community forum about faulty headphone adapters that Google has bundled with both the smartphones.

Some people Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners are reporting that the supplied USB Type-C to 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter isn't working. So instead of playing music through headphones, the phones are continuing to play it through the speakers as though nothing is plugged in. Another user said that he/she rebooted the smartphone in safe mode, which resolved the issue.

Google Support is unwilling to give me Store credit to buy a new one, or a partial refund of my Google Music subscription which I've been unable to use, or a full refund of the phone. Users report that rebooting the phone fixes the issue temporarily, while Google has recommended restarting the phones in safe mode to ensure that no other app is interfering. This particular solution works in some cases, but not all. Recently the Pixel 2 was reported to have a slow fingerprint sensor after the Android 8.1 update. The USB-C port's universal nature means that it can handle more than one function. Once that is accomplished, go to Settings- System- Developer options- Networking- Select USB configuration and then Audio Source from the pop up list.

Google is now rolling out a "Hey, Google" option for Assistant, which should, theoretically, fix this issue. It seems the delay is about a second long on average, but even a second-long delay can feel like ages when you're frequently unlocking your phone. 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.

The omission of the 3.5 mm headphone jack has been increasing among smartphones as of late.
