Google Addresses Visual Artifacts on Pixel Screens with New Software Update

Google has recently released an update for certain Pixel devices to address a common issue that users have been experiencing, which is a green tint flashing across the screen. The problem has been reported by many Pixel users, and it seems that Google has finally come up with a solution.

If you have a Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, or Pixel 7 Pro and you’re currently using the Android 13 QPR2 Beta program, you should be able to get the update. To get the update, go to your phone’s Settings, then go to System, and then go to System Update.

The latest software update from Google is designed to address a problem that some Pixel device users have been facing, where their screens would flash green or display strange visuals that don’t belong. Google has identified the issue and provided a fix in the latest update.

In a thread on their Issue Tracker, users reported several instances of their Pixel devices displaying a brief green flicker, streaks across the screen, or half of the display flashing green or white before turning black and becoming unresponsive. Although the issue is not widespread, users have been reporting the problem since November 2022.

The update addresses a bug, which made the screen flash green or show strange visual effects that shouldn’t be there. The specific issues were known as Issue #260941279 and #256052135. With the new update, these issues should be resolved.

Additionally, the update enables Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 devices to work with Jio’s 5G network. This is good news for users who want to take advantage of the faster speeds that 5G provides. With this update, Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 users can connect to Jio’s 5G network and enjoy a better online experience.

If you’ve been experiencing any of these issues, the new update should help to fix them. It’s great to see that Google is actively addressing these problems and working to provide a better user experience for Pixel device owners.

This is not the first time that Google has released updates to address display issues on its devices. In the past, the company has released updates to fix problems with screen burn-in and other issues. While it’s great that these issues are now fixed, it’s surprising that it took the company this long.
