Google to release update that gets rid of weird buzzing noise on the Pixel 2

Review: Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

The Google Pixel line has been hit by one issue after another. But the good thing coming out of it is it seems Google is at least paying attention to remedy what they can. This time around there seems to be a strange buzzing sound coming out of the smaller Pixel 2 device—at least for some users. The sounds apparently manifests when the phone is placed to the ear when making calls. According to Google, the update will be on its way in the coming weeks but they won’t specify a date yet.

Spotify now supports iPhone X

The iPhone X screen with and without the letterboxing

Might be a bit late when compared to other popular apps but better late than never we say. The iOS version of Spotify now supports the iPhone X’s 5.8-inch OLED display. This means you get to see more of things like track lists and search results on the screen as well as more artwork when you browse through albums and playlists. The 1,125 x 2,436 resolution display of the iPhone X allows for 20 percent more vertical space for content. Heavy users of the music streaming app might appreciate the update.

Google Lens shows up on Assistant for Pixel devices

Google Lens, the company’s visual search feature, has been slated to come to Assistant but a definite date wasn’t said when the news was announced. Now, it looks like it’s starting to roll out for both Pixel and Pixel 2 devices. Owners of the original Pixel and XL as well as the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL should be able to launch Lens right from Google’s artificial intelligence helper, taking away the extra step of needing to use Google Photos to have Lens work its magic. Now, the camera button within Assistant will help perform search when you take a photo.

It can do everything from identifying what you’re looking at, look thing sup online, and launch other apps. You can rate the results it finds, which should hopefully help refine its results for the future. The feature isn’t widely available yet so keep your eye out for that. We also don’t know yet if other Android devices will be getting the feature.
