Google fixes Pixel and Pixel XL freezing issues in the latest security update

Google's Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones had been plagued by many issues since their release last fall. A small percentage of these problems were caused during the manufacturing process, while others, most of them, were addressed via software updates.

A rather long thread on Google's product forums contains the reports of many Pixel and Pixel XL owners who claim their devices freeze randomly or when they execute specific operations.

The reports started piling up since November, which means it took Google almost seven months to address some of the freezing issue affecting the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones.

Even so, there is no guarantee that the fix will work for all situations, so if you've been affected by these freezing issues, the update might not solve the problem entirely, Google claims.

So, feel free to post your feedback on Google's product forums, especially if the update doesn't do anything for your Pixel or Pixel XL handset.
