The Google Pixel 8 has just received its first update. Here are the new features


Joe Maring / Digital Trends

Google has started rolling out a new software update for its Pixel phones, which also happens to be the first for its latest Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro models. The patch notes don’t mention new features coming, but the update does. fix crucial issues that users have been complaining about on online forums for months and apply to the Pixel 8 series as well as its predecessors.

At the top of the list is a solution to display and graphics issues, including the “green flash when the screen turns off under certain conditions” issue. Google’s post mentions a specific scenario where the green screen issue appears, but users have been reporting it for some time.

Additionally, the “Green Goblin for Pixels” manifests itself in various ways. A user shared an image of the Pixel 8 Pro on Reddit with a vertical green line running across the screen. Others mention random screen flickering or permanent tinting on panels, both partial and full screen. The reports date back at least a few years and appear to affect phones as old as the Pixel 6 series.

Google claims to have also fixed the issues with NFC. Once again, Reddit presents a fair number of complaints documenting random NFC failures related to contactless payment. The Pixel 7 series seems to be the hotbed of NFC issues here, but the complaints go back a few models and also cover older ones like the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4 generations. The latest complaint mentions that the Pixel 7 Pro’s NFC system broke down after updating to Android 14.

Google says it also fixed an issue that sometimes caused wallpaper to become misaligned. It appears that this issue was first spotted during Android’s beta testing phase and was resolved, but has apparently persisted on stable software releases.

Interestingly, the release notes don’t mention anything about fixing the recent storage access issue affecting Pixel 8 owners after installing the recent Android 14 update. Google said that it was investigating the issue and also released a precautionary patch via the Google Play channel, but for users whose devices are stuck in a boot loop cycle or factory reset, there appears to be no recourse available to the moment. .
