The Google Pixel 6 series was introduced last month, and it offers a new aesthetic, upgraded camera hardware, Google’s in-house Tensor SoC, the most up-to-date version of Android, and more. It’s probably the best Pixel phone in a long time, but it’s also had problems.
According to a Pixel community manager on /r/GooglePixel (via Android Police), installing the most recent Google app (12.43.18 or higher) should now cure the problem. They claim that the upgrade is currently available on the Google Play Store, so you should get it soon if you don’t already have it.
But, it still keeps the Google Assistant. The phone is available in three colors: ‘bistre,’ ‘silver,’ and ‘black.’ The device can be customized by downloading a new launcher from our links above.
Some users have claimed that even in quiet areas, their phone would light up and notify them that it was calling a seemingly unconnected contact on their phone’s contact list. As more people confirmed the problem, a Reddit thread on /r/GooglePixel gained traction.
Personally, I’ve never had this issue with my Google Pixel 6 Pro, and I tried all of the methods posted to fix it. It obviously had an impact on a large number of consumers, and it’s great to see Google rolling out a solution.
