  • Many Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 8 series owners have complained about network-related issues since the March 2024 update.
  • Users complain that their phone randomly misses calls, while texts arrive in batches throughout the day.

We’re investigating reports from Pixel users who are complaining of a myriad of network issues on newer software releases.
