Google Pixel Bluetooth issues have been fixed

It’s been about a month since Google Pixel and Pixel XL users started complaining about a Bluetooth issue with their devices. The Bluetooth on the Pixel and Pixel would disable automatically, causing connected devices to stop working.

The issue began after the release of February security patch for the devices. Ever since then, users have had this issue, and even the latest March security update did not fix it. Not every Pixel user encountered this issue, but those who did, it’s time to relax.

Google has rectified the Bluetooth issue and the fix is being seeded to users, and it doesn’t required updating the software or any apps. A Google posted the following message on the Pixel forum;

I just got word that Google has just finished putting a fix in place for this issue on our end — no downloads or updates to your devices or apps are needed.
We’d love to hear feedback from this group. If you have a chance to test your Bluetooth connection, please let us know how it goes.
Now we’re not sure what it means when it says the issue has been fixed on Google’s end. However, users are receiving a new Google Play Services update, which could have the fix in it. If you haven’t received any updates yet, not to worry, as the rollout is taking place gradually.
