Android 12 has bugs and several issues, says Google Pixel Users

Some Google Pixel phone customers are reporting app failures and touch responsiveness difficulties as a result of the latest version of Android.

The Android upgrade that Google published earlier this week amid much anticipation was intended to improve the user experience by incorporating Google’s new Material You design language as well as a number of underlying enhancements and bug fixes.

However, several customers have complained online that shortly after updating their Pixel phones to Android 12, they began experiencing latency and other irritating issues, such as an unresponsive touchscreen, which they attribute to the update. The problems are not restricted to a single model, but rather affect the majority of the most current Pixel smartphones.

Some of the impacted customers have reported their issues on the Google Support forums, which is a good place to start. The installation of Android 12 has caused a considerable number of consumers to report that their Pixel phones have become unresponsive to touch beyond that point.

Others have reported that their apps have crashed after upgrading to the most recent version of the Android operating system. After installing the Android 12 update, a small number of customers have reported experiencing battery depletion difficulties, in addition to other issues, on their Pixel smartphones.

In addition to posting comments on the Google Support forums, some customers have gone to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction with the troubles they are experiencing after updating their Pixel phones to Android 12 (Oreo).

There does not appear to be a specific Pixel model that is experiencing problems; nevertheless, the majority of the reports accessible on the Internet indicate that the problems are affecting current Pixel phones, including the Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, and Pixel 5.

In the meanwhile, Google has not officially confirmed any problems with Android 12. However, product experts on the Google Support forums have advised some afflicted customers to boot their devices into safe mode in order to ascertain whether the problems are caused by any third-party applications. It doesn’t appear to have had a significant impact on consumers’ experiences.

Some news organisations have contacted out to Google for comments on the topic, and we will update this section as soon as the firm answers.

Android 12 was released earlier this week in conjunction with the introduction of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones, following months of beta testing. The Material You design language, which is used by the new operating system, makes interface modifications at the interface level. There are also new privacy-focused features, such as the option to share an approximate position and a new Privacy Dashboard that provides a detailed overview of app permission settings.

It is accessible for all Google Pixel phones, starting with the Pixel 3, which have received the Android 12 upgrade. It is also pre-installed on the Pixel 6 line of smartphones.

  1. I’m having the same problems on my Pixel 3 XL. Touch screen doesn’t work, put I can get the pulldown menu. If I have email or texts I can get to them that way. Can’t swipe right or left. When I unlocked it this morning I immediately touched the Photos icon and my pictures came up, but as soon as I exited, nothing on the screen would respond. Very frustrating.

  2. I have a Pixel 3 and got the upgrade to 12. As soon as the upgrade completed here are the issues:
    Drop calls
    Apps will not open
    screen will not respond.

    Is there any way to go back to the previous version?

  3. I also have a Pixel 3 and after the update to Android 12 began experiencing multiple issues,
    Dropped calls
    Phone making emergency calls all on its own
    Phone opening the camera on its own
    Extreme battery drainage
    No access to apps at times
    No access to phone at all even after powering down and restarting, using fingerprint i d, and passcode
    And other issues I can’t recall at the moment

  4. Im having these issues on my pixel 3 and 3xl since the update:
    battery drainage, no access to apps, phone powering down over and over, calling emergency number and hanging up over and over, dropped calls, can’t scroll to keep reading on messages, or emails. how do we go back?!

  5. I’m having issues as well on my recently activate Pixel 3xl which worked perfectly fine until this wretched excuse of an upgrade. Now some apps will not stay open unless repeatedly activated, Google search is totally non functional and power consumption is much worse than prior to the upgrade. Hopefully, there will be a further revision to this upgrade (patch?) – very soon. I researched how to return to version 11 and it’s a very laborious, tricky and potentially dangerous proposal when it comes to retaining current data.

  6. Definitely! I have a Pixel 3 and I wish I had never “upgraded” to version 11!
    I don’t see improvements, all I see is unimprovements!

  7. I had all the problems. I replace the battery thinking that was bad. And the problem continue. I found that Android made a security upgrade and it looks that now things are good

  8. My Nokia won’t even load the home screen without crashing and says system not responding, Google not responding, UR not responding I havnt been able to use my phone for the past 31 hours when I did the update the Android 12 how can this be fixed
