Android Phones Get One More Hotword To Trigger Google Assistant

The Google Assistant's "Hey Google" trigger phrase is now rolling out to more Android smartphones, with a significant number of users reporting they started receiving the new functionality over the weekend.

Finally, SmartSelect recognises text when you long press, highlights the relevant words, and then recommends the next logical step through a suggested app - for example, it will take you to Google Maps if you copy an address. The regular Pixel 2 now starts at $599, thanks to a $50 discount, while the Pixel 2 XL now starts at $774, thanks to a $75 discount. No new update has since been rolled out to address those issues and now we're hearing about speed issues with the Pixel 2 XL's fingerprint sensor.

On the flip side, there have been several issues with the Pixel 2 XL, including burn-in, unresponsive display edges and flashing screens.

Ate Jellema posted in the Pixel Phone Help forum that their device "takes a good second before screen turns on". Community manager Orrin, who works at Google, said he would gather additional information and bug reports from affected users.

Safety Peyton Thompson suffered a foot injured and only had a brief return before being ruled out in the fourth quarter. First-year wide receiver Jaydon Mickens scored the first two offensive touchdowns of his career in the first half.


Some Pixel 2 XL owners managed to fix the problem by turning on the "always on display" feature on their devices, but for those of you who prefer to keep it disabled in order to improve the battery time, a fix is on the way.

Over the weekend, Google kicked off its best deal yet on Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The issue has been mentioned on a thread and "the team is aware of this and are looking into it", meaning Google may eventually fix this in a later update.

Have you experienced any issues with your Pixel 2 XL after the Android 8.1 update? Let us know in the comment section below.
