Google's Phone app updated, fixing an annoying Pixel 2 bug
Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

This past month an annoying bug began plaguing the phones of unsuspecting Pixel 2Pixel 2 XL, as well as first-gen Pixel owners - sometimes their phone would not "wake up" when receiving an incoming call. The bug was reported by a user on the official Google forums and after a brief investigation, it was found out that the bug occurred only when the phone was connected via Bluetooth to another device. But as of today, owners of Google's latest gen flagships can rejoice - the bug has been fixed with version 16 of Google's Phone app, which is now available for download on the Play Store. 

The fix has been released alongside an official message by the Google Community Manager "Orin": 

Although now gone, the recent bug was just a drop in the ocean of issues Pixel 2 / 2 XL owners are experiencing including screen dead spots and its mic going deaf to name a few.
