Google acknowledges Wi-Fi issues on ‘very small number’ of Pixel 6 phones, fix coming in March

Google says a fix is ​​on the way for Pixel 6 owners dealing with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity issues after installing a security patch earlier this month, as reported by 9to5Google. In response to a user on Reddit, Google acknowledges the issue and says it is including a fix in a March software update.

“After an investigation, we identified the root cause and determined that it affects a very small number of devices,” Google explains. “Of course, we realize this is a bad experience and immediately developed a software fix which will be available in the next Google Pixel update, which will be implemented in March. »

Google also says to contact its support team “to explore other options in the meantime,” but doesn’t provide any details on what exactly that means. What 9to5Google notes, some users found that installing the Android 12L beta 3 fixed the issue, so this may be the “other option” Google is referring to here. Google spokesperson Alex Moriconi confirmed that the information described in the message is “accurate” in a statement to the edge.

For some reason, Google updates just didn’t work as well with your Pixel 6 and 6 Pro flagship devices. Google released its first major update for both phones in December after users reported dropped and disconnected calls. His January update fixed the bug – but things broke again with the release of the latest patch, which caused some devices to randomly turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
