One of the most common seems to when the phone is locked and the user tries to initiate Google Assistant by squeezing the phone and activating the Active Edge feature. While there's no permanent solution to it, but a user named Adam Zeird has found a temporary fix.

If the Pixel User Community forums are any indication, it would seem that this is not an isolated incident, as many are chiming in with the same problem.

For some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users, the microphone malfunction issue can be fixed by blowing up in the speaker which may sound old school but until Google responds, this may be the best bet.

Though users have been discussing this particular bug on the Google Product Forums since October, Android Police brought attention to the issue today. Still, if that's no issue for you and you don't mind the Pixel 2's bezels or the Pixel 2 XL's problems, head on over to Verizon to grab either one by using the Source links below.

European Union raises growth forecast for eurozone to decade high
For the next two years, the Commission forecasts decrease in employment growth to 0.4% and 0.3% due to limited labour supply. The EC has forecast growth of 1.6 percent for Greece this year, with rates of 2.5 percent expected in both 2018 and 2019.

"In my case the issue occurs always and not only when the screen is locked and I squeeze to launch the Assistant".

After a series of flow in the Pixel 2 XL, the smaller sibling is now facing some issue related to the microphone. "Blowing into the speaker when the microphone is working causes it to fail", Zeird wrote.

Google is aware of the problem but it hasn't yet discussed a timescale for a fix. In some posts, Pixel 2 XL users claim that the issue was seen when powering on the handset. The user also posted a video saying that it doesn't happen every time, but first noticed the issue immediately after purchasing the device.

Ever since Google started selling the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in the market, things have gone bad to worst. A new type of problem has cropped up on the internet where a small percentage of users are experiencing "screen flashes" whenever they lock or unlock the device. I've yet to have the phone a full 24 hours.
