Latest Pixel 2 bug prevents Assistant from working on Bluetooth headphones

Brandon Jones and Trey Perry posted videos showing that touches to the edge of each unit's display don't register.

Google's own Assistant-enabled headphones, the Pixel Buds, will be released and shipped soon.

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.

The Pixel 2 XL has just added another issue to what seems like an endless parade of problems with regards to its screen.

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. However, tapping on the edges is not always detected by the handset.

With the advent of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google also announced its most intriguing earbuds in an attempt to dabble in the wireless earbuds category last month. The screen response issue is along the curved edges of the screen.

Indeed this seems fishy and as the source reports it is to do with accidental touch protection logic.

The official Google Community Manager assigned on the Pixel 2 community page addressed the issue on unresponsive screen edges.

Google remains unavailable for comment on the issue. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know that Google will fix the problem in the future. While some users are experiencing premature screen burn-in and seeing a bluish tint, others are apparently having trouble with its responsiveness.
