Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL software update fixes voice call clicking, adds saturated display mode
A new software update for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is out now, and aside from bringing a fix for the Wi-Fi-related Krack vulnerability, it's also aiming to mend the devices' audio and display problems.

As a refresher, numerous reports about clicking and cracking in the earpiece during voice calls and OLED display burn-in have marred the launch of Google's latest flagships. Oh, and let's not forget that some devices are shipping sans an operating system out of the box.

In particular, a new toggle in the display settings menu allows users to choose between three separate display modes - boosted, natural, and saturated. The saturated mode for the Pixel 2 display is pretty similar to the first Pixel's display colors, which can be easily perceived as more punchy and vivid. 


OLED burn-in has also been addressed in the latest update by employing different software enhancements that should prevent the display from exhibiting any burn-in issues overtime.


That's essentially an answer to users' woes about the visual and audio-related issues Pixels. The update will be rolling out to all devices this week, so don't freak out if you don't get it today.
