How to Fix Google Pixel Android 8.0 Problems

If you're experiencing problems don't expect Google to help, at least not yet. This software just arrived today, and we won't see Android 8.0.1 for at least a month or two. Well, unless something major is broken. That said, Google could push out some different files soon enough that allows Pixel XL owners to accept the update. 

Luckily most of the Google Pixel Android 8.0 problems we're expecting are things we see with every other software update or version. This means you'll be able to find solutions on the web, from Google's support pages, or from our past coverage. Start with these 10 common Google Pixel problems, then check out our list of fixes for the Android Nougat update

Both guides discuss improving poor battery life, fixing WiFi and Bluetooth issues, random reboots and other common problems. Some of these are likely to surface in Oreo during the first few days. 

Another good idea is to let the Android 8.0 update settle in, reboot your phone, and see if things fix themselves. The first moments after an update can be a little choppy as the phone starts up and settles in. If you're still having problems drop a comment below and we'll do our best to help.

    Something simple perhaps, that I don’t seem to be finding any online info about:

    Right after install, we are prompted to “Select Home”, where the selections are “EasyHome”, “Home”, or “Home & app drawer”

    At first, I kept the use-as-default box unchecked to make it easy to try the options a bit. (I’m still not clear what “EasyHome” is supposed to be…. except simpler.)

    HERE’s the big takeaway, for me: if you select “Home & app drawer”,
    then you GET BACK the icon setup, from your desktop BEFORE the update to 8.0.
