Google will issue an update to fix Pixel 3 memory management issues

Share

Google Camera's new Night Sight mode has been impressing nearly everyone lately.

Android Auto was released on the Google Play Store last October 31. The exact nature of the malfunction correction remains unclear, as more than a few people have expressed skepticism of late this problem could in fact be repaired on a software level. As it turns out, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been riddled with bugs.

Probably the most annoying and user experience-damaging issue of them all effectively made multitasking impossible, as the Pixel 3 and 3 XL appeared unable to handle running more than a couple of apps at the same time.

Imagine having RAM management problems that are so bad, taking a picture in the camera app causes other apps to crash. That's where some users are at with the Pixel 3 right now. It's obviously infuriating, but now we at least have some good news to share.

Google is aware of the issues and will push a fix "in the coming weeks", likely with the December security update. Now, a developer has managed to port the Google Camera with Night Sight and HDR+ to the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T as well, and the mode seems to work better than the stock camera's highlight feature Nightscape mode as well.

As for when Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL owners can expect the update to arrive on their phones, we unfortunately don't have an exact date just yet.
