Google Pixel 2 AR Stickers Ready To Go

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners claiming included headphone adapter doesn't work

Recently the Pixel 2 was reported to have a slow fingerprint sensor after the Android 8.1 update.

Some users have reported a noticeable lag in the scanner's responsiveness since the OS update, so that it now takes longer for Pixel 2 XL owners to reach the home screen.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, both, do not have a 3.5mm headphone jack and Google has bundled a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter to help users connect their "legacy" headphones.

This is not a good year for Google Pixel 2 XL smartphone, from the point of the phone launch to till date there are many problems which are evolving around the Google Pixel 2 XL. According to multiple complaints over at Google's Product Forums, the phones fail to recognize the adapter or any pair of headphones connected to it, and simply continue to play media through the built-in speakers. Replies to this solution, however, prove that it does not seem to work for most Pixel 2 owners in the thread.

Google Support is unwilling to give me Store credit to buy a new one, or a partial refund of my Google Music subscription which I've been unable to use, or a full refund of the phone.

In the later posts the user confirmed that the company agreed for a replacement unit.

The second-generation Pixel phones have seen a flurry of complaints, with users flagging problems with the OLED display, unusual effects when clicking the picture, muted microphones, a mysterious buzzing noise, random reboots, and crashes in Android Auto mode. Once that's done, users will go back to Settings, tap System Developer options Networking Select USB configuration and then select Audio Source.

Given that there are a variety of possible solutions, here, it looks like it's not specifically tied to a faulty adapter (one user says they've owned three different dongles and the problem has persisted); there may be more than one problem at play.

The second-generation Pixel phones have had some struggles.

There's no quick fix for Android 8.1 WiFi problems, but Google should release an OTA update soon for the Pixel devices to fix WiFi and VPN problem on Android 8.1.

Given the reliability of a tried and true technology like the 3.5mm headphone jack, having the USB-C replacement not work is understandably frustrating.
