Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro update ‘paused’ to fix dropped calls

Bad news, Pixel fans: Google has confirmed it is suspending the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro December Update due to reports of dropped calls and disconnections. As Droid Life reports, the news explains why many Pixel 6 owners have not received the update in recent weeks. For the lucky few who managed to hook it up and have no issues, Google says you can sit back and relax.

But for those experiencing connectivity issues, the only solution is to flash your phone to an earlier version of Android and do a factory reset. As always, backup your device before attempting such a massive undertaking. The December update was meant to add new features like ultra-wideband on the Pixel 6 Pro and Quick Tap to Snap for easy access to Snapchat from your lockscreen. Google says these features will make their way into the January fix.

The delay is a bit of a debacle for the company, especially since the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro were meant to show off the combined power of Google’s custom processor and software. This is probably not the best way to prove it can build the Android equivalent of an iPhone.
