    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.
