Unfortunately for Google, yet another problem has surfaced for the company’s new flagship, the Pixel 2 XL. The newest issue, first reported by the Pixel user community, is that the Pixel 2 XL is recording stifled audio in video recordings.
Some recordings are sounding sharp and tinny, while background sounds are muddy. In an extreme case, the recordings sounded like what could only be a bat cave for a few seconds before returning to normal. This has reportedly only happened to the Pixel 2 XL, without any reports of the Pixel 2.
According to CNET, Google is aware of the issue and the fix will be “rolled out in the next few weeks.” Google will also be rolling out a software update to fix the Pixel 2 XL’s burn-in issue, as well as the display’s muted colours.
Google is also offering a two-year manufacturer’s warranty for every Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL worldwide.
