The troubles don’t seem to end here for Google, new issues are coming up and this time Pixel 2 has joined the league.
The trouble begins when you start operating the Google Assistant via your Bluetooth headphones. The devices simply mute its microphone as soon as the Assistant is involved, you will not be able to use the function at all. The device doesn’t detect any voice input through the Bluetooth headphones. It makes a sound which indicates that it is listening but it doesn’t detect any voice. Multiple users have detected and tested this issue with many other headphones of different brands like Anker, LG, Beats, and Plantronics. The problem seemed to continue. Not only this the Pixel 2 is facing certain issue in the microphone as well. You can check the details of the problem here.
