Google Assistant isn't working with Bluetooth headphones on some Pixel 2s

After a month of reported issues with regards to its display and some aspects of its audio, Google is still looking to bounce back and cast a positive light on its Pixel 2 XL. Specifically, a number of Pixel 2 device owners have been lodging a complaint with the Pixel User Community (although the actual issue ultimately originated on Reddit) noting how Google Assistant does not seem to work with the two new Pixel phones when a set of Bluetooth headphones is thrown into the mix. A new type of problem has cropped up on the internet where a small percentage of users are experiencing "screen flashes" whenever they lock or unlock the device. If you haven't ordered the Pixel Buds and think you might want to, you can head over the Google Store and pick them up for $159. But this is one of those times, so brace yourself - it's a deal we're talking about. Likewise, device owners have reported the issues persists regardless of which brand of headphones are used. Users have posted videos showing a bright white or greenish flash that seems to confirm the issue. This seemingly confirms that the screen flashing issue is related to software.

In what seemed partially meant to be consolation for removing the headphone jack from the Google Pixel 2, the Mountain View company announced the Google Pixel Buds, a pair of semi-wireless headphones (they're still wired to each other, but now your phone).

He believes that it "probably interferes with productivity in weird ways" and had some even more unsafe assertions about it. "God only knows what it's doing to our children's brains", Parker said in an Axios interview published Thursday, Nov. 9.

Pixel 2 users get to sample a whole host of Android features that are unique to Google's second generation flagships. Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge. "I was able to replicate the issue by blowing into the bottom speaker. Yes..." I have had the same exact symptoms as everyone here so it may be for us all. "Doing this made my microphone work again and it continues to work when it goes out".
