Last month we reported that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL had an intermittent problem with third-party apps when using the camera. Those that ran into the issue would get a "fatal error" or similar warning as the camera failed to work in the app, a problem that would then persist in those apps even across reboots.

Google's Pixel 3 and 3 XL have some of (if not the) best cameras of the year, and paired with that generally impressive performance are a handful of pretty nifty software features.
