Google Pixel’s boot screen will soon only be available in dark mode

Google Pixel’s boot screen will soon only be available in dark mode

While we don't come across the boot animation that often, it still is a part of the core Android experience and needs to match up with wider design choices. A subtle tweak, but with Android 10, even the boot screen of Pixel phones gained a dark background that would automatically be used if the system theme was set to dark mode. Going forward, it might not cycle between the two modes at all.

Google Assistant is glitching out on some users

Google Assistant is no J.A.R.V.I.S., but it's come a long way since it was announced in 2016. Not only can it control tens of thousands of smart home devices, but it can also hold calls for you.

Unfortunately, for some of them, it has been unavailable across all devices — including Android/iOS phones and even smart displays/speakers.

Some Pixel 4 owners are experiencing rapid battery discharge and random shutdowns

Pixel phones combine solid specs and clean software for an really nice, overall Google-y experience — but they don't come without their fair share of issues. From cameras problems on the Pixel 2 to touchscreen bugs on the Pixel 4a, being first in line for software updates can sometimes have a price. Pixel 4 owners have complained about a weird battery bug for months now, and it seems like the recent Android 11 update hasn't fixed anything — and may have only exacerbated the issue.

Android 11's jarring Pixel 4 display flicker bug will be fixed shortly

Android 11's jarring Pixel 4 display flicker bug will be fixed shortly

Starting with Android 11 Developer Preview 4, a few Pixel 4 users, including us here at Android Police, noticed an odd display flicker bug, which we could pin down to some rapid flip-flopping between the 60 and 90Hz modes. While you might not be able to see it in screen recordings, the flickering is very visible and very annoying when you use the phone. Unfortunately, the bug is still present two development cycles later in Beta 2, but Google has promised that it will fix the issue with an update slated to be released in two weeks.

Pixel 4 Motion Sense will work in most countries, including Japan (Update: Live in Japan)

Motion Sense is the most unique feature the Google Pixel 4 has to offer, but there's been some confusion around international availability. Since the technology is based on radar, there are many regulators and rules involved, which made us fear it might not come to users in Japan. In a lucky turn of events, the official Google Reddit account published more information on the feature, detailing that it'll come to Japan "soon," after all.
