As per a Pixel User Community post, some Pixel 2 XL owners have been noticing dead spots close to the bezels, specifically on the right-hand edge of the screen.

Washington D.C [US] Nov 11: The recent bug in Google's latest offerings, Pixel 2 and 2 XL prevents Google Assistant from working on Bluetooth headphones. While the handset activates the Assistant once the "OK Google" hotword is passed through the connected headphones, the virtual assistant doesn't listen to any commands.

The problem occurs when one tries to talk to Google Assistant on their phones while wearing Bluetooth headphones with a microphone.


Stop me if you've heard this one before: The Pixel 2 XL has another screen issue.

First reported by Android Police, the Pixel 2 XL does have some issues, but only few have reported them online and on the Pixel user community forums.

Earlier, this week, Google had issued updates to some of the bugs.


Interestingly, Google unveiled the Pixel Buds Bluetooth-enabled headphones alongside the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL earlier this year that are created to deliver a Google Assistant experience while on the go. He tried to do swiping gestures on the display's edges, which prompted an action.

An administrator on the forum however, claims that Google is already aware of the problem and will soon push out a fix for the same via an OTA update.
