Another software bug with another new Google product is bad news for everyone
Google unleashed an avalanche of new hardware on us in October. Not only did it debut two brand-new smartphones, but it also expanded the Google Home lineup substantially, delved into headphones with the Pixel Buds, and showed off some more VR things.
Unfortunately, it seems that Google’s quality control isn’t quite up to par, or a number of these were rushed to market. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have a laundry list of problems so long that Google’s basically playing whack-the-critical-firmware bug, rushing out one fix so fast it breaks something else.
