Google Pixel 6 series start 2022 with a bug – auxiliary function freezes the screen


Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro Charger

Recently, some users noticed a new bug on the Google Pixel 6 series. After activating the “canPerformGesture” permission on the Pixel 6 series which allows the app to send gestures, for every 1% of power consumption, the screen will freeze for 1-2 seconds. Within this time, the user can not carry out any operation on the display. One to two seconds of operation interruption is pretty small but you never know how important those seconds could be. Besides, it is just really irritating to touch your screen and it’s just stuck.

The solution is also very simple, you just need to close all accessibility services. This includes voice access, accessibility menu, switch access, etc. According to Google, it is currently investigating the issue but it did not give a specific time to fix it.

Google Pixel 6 series is no stranger to bugs

Google Pixel 6 series has been facing some issues since its official launch. The company recently released the December update for this series. However, the update caused some of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to experience network signal loss problems. According to reports, users of the Google Pixel 6 series in Germany, France, Belgium, Spain, and other countries reported that their devices have experienced obvious network signal loss problems since they accepted the December update. The Pixel 6 series often cannot connect to the data network, and even make calls. The company urgently called off the update and it is expected to re-release it in January.

Google Pixel 6 series – signal loss

In December, there were reports that the Google Pixel 6 series losses signal for no reason. According to reports, during use, the phone will have no signal. It will take a few minutes to connect to the Internet. However, users can temporarily alleviate after restarting the smartphone but this is not a permanent solution. Although Google provides a replacement service, getting a new unit still will not solve this issue.

Google Pixel 6 series – won’t charge

Similarly, users also complained that the new Pixel devices won’t charge when used with a number of third-party chargers and cables. While such problems do not arise with other devices, everything works fine. This is believed to be due to the use of non-USB Power Delivery certified cables and adapters to charge the Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro. Probably low-quality accessories were in use.

This series has also had issues such as slow fingerprint unlocking, automatic dialing, can not automatically rotate the screen, and other bugs. However, it is important to note that Google has since fixed most of these bugs.

    since Christmas Eve my pixel 3xl has been charging to a full 24%, it assumes it's a full charge, charge lasts about 6hrs under constant use; from time to time screen does not freeze but resets coming back in a sweep. not sure if I'll update to a 6pro tough, thinking of returning to retro days of land line service and PC. though we now think G5 wow, it's really not better than the modem v45 and FTP days.

    Honestly am stunned with the pixel 6 & 6 pro release, The only issue I have with my pixel 6 pro is that the metal frame is fairly slippery, therefore I had to invest in total clear body protection from gadgetshieldz, because I don't want to ruin the aesthetic apperance of my pixel 6 pro by adding cases to it. Pixel 6's visual appeal is quite appealing to me.
