Pixel 2's muted mic issue may be fixed by blowing into the bottom speaker Nintendo-style

Half the utility of a smartphone is obvious from its very name. At a minimum, it should be able to make calls, which requires a working mic and speaker. For some, half of that simple equation is missing when it comes to the Pixel 2 and its microphone. When making calls, it just doesn't work.

Here are 17 temporarily free and 11 on-sale apps for your Wednesday

I think that there's just something about this week that has made it so that I have no idea what day it actually is. Luckily, Google was kind enough to remind me that it is, in fact, Wednesday, which means it's time for another list of app sales.

[Update: Regional availability] Music recognition in Google Assistant no longer exclusive to Pixel 2, now works on more devices

Just about a month ago, the "what's this song" music identification functionality started to roll out to Assistant on both of the new Pixel 2 phones. Google's voice search (for instance, via "Google Now") had this functionality for a long time, but for whatever reason, the transition to the new Assistant stripped that feature away. Although it was back for the Pixel 2, it appears that music recognition in the Assistant is now rolling out to non-Google devices as well.

Some Pixel 2 XL screens are flashing when locking and unlocking

An altogether very well-received phone, the Pixel 2 XL has gotten mostly glowing reviews for its minimal bezels and standout camera. Its display, however, has been widely criticised for a host of reasons, including washed out colors, significant blue shift when viewed at an angle, lines of dead or colored pixels, graininess, and light bleed, just to name a few. Now, reports are surfacing of yet another issue with the screen — as if the current ones weren't already enough.

In a post on the Pixel User Community forum, multiple users have been complaining that the Pixel 2 XL's screen will occasionally flash when locking or unlocking the device.

Logitech's Harmony remotes have long been one of the most popular ways to pare down the number of remotes floating around your living room.
