For certain Google Pixel users, Android 12 is reportedly causing app crashes and poor touch responsiveness. Google’s Android upgrade, which was launched earlier this week amid much anticipation, was designed to improve user experience by incorporating Google’s new Material You design language as well as numerous other enhancements. However, several customers have complained on social media that after updating their Pixel phones to Android 12, they began experiencing latency and other unpleasant issues, including a non-responsive touchscreen. The problems aren’t exclusive to one model, but they affect nearly all of Google’s most current Pixel phones.
Some of the impacted Google Pixel phone consumers have posted about their issues on Google’s support forums. A huge number of consumers have reported that after upgrading to Android 12, their Pixel phones have become unresponsive to touch. Others have reported app crashes after upgrading to the newest Android version. Following the Android 12 upgrade, a few customers have reported battery drain issues as well as other issues on their Pixel devices.
Few Twitter posts regarding the issue:
Along with posting concerns on the Google Support forums, some customers have gone to Twitter to discuss the issues they’re having with their Pixel phones after switching to Android 12.
The difficulties don’t appear to a single Pixel model. However, most of the complaints on the Internet indicate that they’re affecting current Pixel phones including the Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, and Pixel 5.
According to Google, they have not identified Android 12 as having any faults yet. However, the company has asked some affected users to switch to safe mode by product experts on the Google Support forums to see whether any third-party applications are causing the difficulties. It doesn’t appear to have aided users too much.
After months of beta testing, the company released Android 12 alongside the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro earlier this week. The Material You design language is also there in the new operating system to introduce modifications to the user experience. There are also new privacy-focused features, such as the option to share a rough location. And a new Privacy Dashboard that shows app permission settings in detail.
Starting with the Pixel 3, the Android 12 upgrade is available for all Google Pixel phones. It’s also pre-installed on the Pixel 6 series.
