Google Pixel is a premium smartphone designed and made by Google. As a premium smartphone, it is made from high-quality materials, it has excellent software and many useful features. But, all these things don’t mean that this device is free of problems.

Make sure to update your software as soon as it’s out. More often than not, it has the solution to most of your Phone’s woes. Because, the Pixel was launched with a buggy Bluetooth stack. Google has since launched multiple updates with fixes to these issues. So, if your handset is not running on the latest update, install it right away as there is a good chance it will not only alleviate your Bluetooth issues but improve your allover Pixel experience.

Factory Reset

At last, the painful option we all want to avoid because of the whole backup train that comes with it. But if nothing else works, this is your best chance at solving the problem. Sometimes, there are different settings that alter your handset’s entire experience and hinder Bluetooth connectivity. Attempting to get to the bottom of it is redundant and likely to take up hours of your time without assurance that you will get to the bottom of it. In such cases, factory reset your Pixel and make your problems disappear in a poof.

There is no assurance that these solutions will eradicate your Bluetooth issues for good. If your Pixel has been showing connectivity issues with a certain device since the beginning, your only hope is to sit back and patiently wait for an update from Google which might offer a remedy to these bugs.
