Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL Start Having Problems After The Android 7.1.2 Update


The Android 7.1.2 update that Google has released is causing some major issues on the Pixel devices. We remind you that this was the latest update that the big search engine company has released and both the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL devices have some serious problems with it.

While the update comes with several bug fixes and improvements, it appears that it’s also causing some issues related to the fingerprint scanner. In addition, it also brings other annoying errors, which Google will most likely fix sometime in the near future.

In concordance with Android Police, there are users who have reported that the fingerprint on their Nexus and Pixel devices has stopped working right after they’ve updated to Android 7.1.2 Nougat. The affected devices are: Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel and Pixel XL.

The users have also tried to fix the issue by themselves by removing the pre-existing fingerprints and adding new ones. However, that didn’t solve the problem and an error is appearing when trying to add new prints to the handset.

Google has not stated anything about these issues, but there are rumors saying that the big search engine company is already working on a fix for the fingerprint problem. We also have to mention that there are some Pixel and Pixel XL owners who have complained that their devices have some Bluetooth setup problems.

However, we remind you that this problem has been present since the February security patch was released. It seems that the Bluetooth feature is failing to connect to cars, which is quite annoying for the users who are using this option while driving.
