Google confirms Pixel 6 Wi-Fi issues, says fix is on way

15

Tech giant Google has confirmed Pixel 6 Wi-Fi issues and said it will be fixed with the upcoming upate in March.

The issue sees Wi-Fi automatically shutting off when Pixel 6 devices are locked or not turning on at all, 9To5Google reported on Tuesday.

The tech giant said its investigation found the root cause and that it “impacts a very small number of devices”.

A software fix has been developed and set to arrive with the Google Pixel Update in March, the report said.

The first Monday of next month happens to fall on the 7th, with factory and over-the-air (OTA) images available that morning, it added.

According to The Verge, the tech giant also said to contact its support team “to explore other options in the meantime,” but it does not provide any details on what exactly that means.

As 9to5Google points out, some users have found that installing the Android 12L beta 3 has solved the problem, so that may be the “other option” Google is referencing here.

Google spokesperson Alex Moriconi confirmed the information outlined in the post is “accurate” in a statement to The Verge.
