Google Lens now arriving to the Google Pixels and Pixel 2s

Google Lens now arriving to the Google Pixels and Pixel 2s

Unfortunately, in life, you don't always get what you want. Recently, it was reported that a unusual green line started appearing on the display of some iPhone X units.

Google's HTC-produced Pixel 2 and LG-supplied Pixel 2 XL phones have barely been out a month, collecting more complaints from disgruntled early adopters that other mobile devices have the misfortune to generate in a lifetime. The rollout looks gradual so Pixel owners can expect it to happen in the next few weeks. According to them, the noise starts emitting when they are speaking to someone on a call. While there have been cases of people facing a myriad of issues, there are others who have had the best experiences using the Pixel 2. The company, however, has been attempting to acknowledge the issues steadily, and has been prompt.

Fans were also reminded that feedback is important in refining the capabilities of the Google Lens.




Apparently, an upcoming software update would address the odd noise.

A Pixel 2 issue, where users reported hearing a faint "buzzing sound" when the device was placed near their ears during a phone call, is finally being fixed.

Since the statement doesn't reveal the exact timeline, we assume the update would also include the December security patch. Well, the time has come and the company says that a fix will be rolling out in the "coming weeks" although there's no mention of dates. You should update the Google app on your smartphone to get the update.
