Pixel 6 and 6 Pro no longer call random contacts: bug fix in distribution


If the call log says you called your or your ex, but you don’t remember ever, it may not be alcohol but yours Pixel .

In our preview of the Pixel 6 Pro we told you about how Google smartphones in recent history have not shown up at launch exactly ready and able to offer that pure and free Android experience of roughness that promise. And even the latest models are no exception, as reiterated also in the live broadcast on the HDBlog Twitch channel, focused on the first considerations about Pixel 6 Pro.

In Italy the Mountain View phones will arrive only in 2022, but in rest of the world the first users begin to receive their orders. And to report some bugs , such as the one we are talking about today, and that according to the thread dedicated to it on Reddit it seems to have a significant spread: just enough to take note.

Google Pixel con Android 12, aggiornamento problematico

Android 22 Oct

As suggested above, the problem is that Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro for some obscure reason, and without apparently needing any input, make calls to random contacts in the address book . Engaged users talk about events that occur with the screen off and often with the phone away. Furthermore, many have noticed that it was the Google Assistant (the equivalent of the butler in a yellow) who selected random contacts but without having received any indication to do so: the hypothesis, therefore, is that a misreading of some noises of fund can activate it and then generate the “ghost calls”.

Digging into the thread, however, it emerges that the situation would not be exclusive to the new Pixels 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, but would also affect other models, with reports also affecting Pixel 3 . The common thread would be the update to Android 12, that as we know it has already proved quite problematic.
