Google Pixel 6’s first major update rollout is now delayed due to reports of issues from users. This is unfortunate as it’s already facing a lot of issues and blockages due to various other issues. Now, the company confirms its decision to pause the Pixel 6 series update for December.
According to reports, the December 2021 update paused due to reports of call drops. Meanwhile, they also claim that they have identified a fix that will roll out in a software update by late January. To recall, Google’s latest flagship is facing a lot of issues due to software glitches. To clarify the issue, the company has released a statement as below:
Hey Pixel Community,Your Pixel Community Manager, Camille
The Pixel team paused the December software update to Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices after some users reported calls were dropping or disconnecting. We have now identified a fix that will roll out in a software update by late January. This update will also include all the fixes and improvements that were originally planned in December. If you received the December software update on Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro and are still experiencing mobile connectivity issues, you can revert to the previous software version using the Android Flash Tool (flash.android.com) and performing a factory reset. Please back up your phone before restoring to the previous software version. If you are not experiencing mobile connectivity issues, no action is required. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we roll out the fix.
Google Pixel 6 Update Delayed Due to Call Dropping Issues
On the other hand, Droid Life reports, many have received the Pixel 6 series update and are already facing issues due to it. For the lucky few who managed to snag it and aren’t having any issues, Google says you can sit tight. However, for those experiencing connectivity issues, your only fix is to flash your phone to an earlier version of Android and perform a factory reset.
As always, be sure to backup your device before attempting such a massive undertaking. The December update was meant to add new features like ultra-wideband on the Pixel 6 Pro, and Quick Tap to Snap for easily accessing Snapchat from your lock screen. Google says those features will make their way to the January fix.
As we know, the December update was packing a long list of eagerly anticipated fixes already. It also included fast 23W wireless charging with the Pixel Stand 2. In addition, it included new features like the “Quick Tap to Snap”. Now, most of the users will have to wait for the new update to come again with a fix.
