Auto rotate, tap to wake and more stop working on Pixel 6, Pixel 7

The latest bug infecting the Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 lines is one that prevents these models from automatically rotating from portrait to landscape orientation. This seems to be the case on YouTube. Sincerely, Have experienced this lately on my Pixel 6 Pro. Instead of automatically rotating to landscape, users are forced to tap the small box at the bottom right of the screen in portrait to manually move the video to the right. landscape orientation.

Pixel Users Find Auto Rotate Not Working With YouTube App

pixel users in Reddit they were also discussing the bug. A user named BennyBoy218 writes, “It seems to be when I’m mostly using YouTube, but auto-rotation doesn’t kick in. I have to manually turn it on, which is frustrating.” Some users found that swiping up from the bottom of a portrait YouTube video automatically changes the image to landscape. As one Reddit user puts it, “pressing up on the video goes full screen, which I find easier than the little square.”

Some claim that this problem is not limited to the Pixel brand. A Reddit subscriber who goes by the name “adamcordo” (which could be his real name) says the same problem appeared on his Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. As a result, he suggests that the problem could be with the YouTube app rather than an Android bug.

And considering the number of upvotes on Reddit my comment that this is happening to the Pixel 6 Pro has received as well, I’m guessing the failure to auto-rotate while watching YouTube on the Pixel 6 or Pixel 7 is pretty widespread. .

Another issue, which this writer experienced late last week, took away one of the Pixel’s best features. Let’s say an alarm or a timer goes off. Just say “stop” and that will dismiss the alarm. Personally, I love this feature as it allows me to stop the timer or alarm even if I’m not by my phone to tap the “stop” button on the screen (and just to be clear, it’s not lazy , I am crippled, with chronic pain and I use a cane).

But after sending feedback to Google directly from my phone, it seems that the problem has been solved. So yeah, thanks guys!

Another issue that a Pixel 7 user wrote about seems reminiscent of the Pixel 6. A Reddit user with the username “shoelover46” says that his phone’s modem won’t turn on after going through an area with no cellular service (like an underground parking garage) until you fiddle with the Airplane mode switch.

Tap-to-wake and Pixel 6 fingerprint scanner have issues

And while we’re airing some complaints about pixels, we should point out that some of us are having inconsistent results with tap-to-wake. There are periods of time where this works tremendously well, and sometimes it doesn’t work at all. A Reddit user using the name “AlaskanSnowDragon” writes, “I’d say for me (it works) 85-90 percent (of the) time. But it doesn’t work/log enough to make it noticeable and annoying.”

Finally, an old man. It looks like the fingerprint sensor has regressed a bit on the Pixel 6 Pro. There’s been talk of Google turning to Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint sensor for the Pixel 8 lineup next year. As for the rumored Pixel Fold, renders that we showed you recently from FPT revealed that the biometric reader will be integrated with the side-mounted power button.

The next update to the Pixel line will be the Quarterly Pixel Feature Drop which is expected on December 5th. Hopefully some of these bugs will be fixed with this update. Also, those of you in the Android 13 QPR1 beta program will be able to opt out of the beta program once you install the stable version of the December feature quarterly release.
