What a disappointing update! I never had any problems with both of my Pixels (3a & 3 XL) until this last update. Both of my phones go on lockdown/curfew at 10:30pm and nothing on the screens will not function until 8am?? I went to Google customer service and they referred me to tech help that charges you $45 a month with a free month trial..I don't need or want that service, I just want my phones to work like they did before. If this is the way that Google is forcing their most loyal users to forcefully upgrade to their newer devices, well than I think that my six year relationship with Google has come to an long!

This update is awful. It's less intuitive, bulky, and awkward. Makes me want to go back to an apple phone. None of these new features make sense and it's not aesthetically appealing. I couldn't access my app screen and no Google information was helpful. Thankfully someone in this discussion found we have to swipe up from the middle of the screen. Why??? What's the purpose??? What better function do any of these visual updates have?

Only thing I'm happy about with the update is the emergency and screen recording features.

I HATE THIS UPDATE! WTFFFF GOOGLE!?!? The clock is horrible now; awkward size, the date is in white and I can't read it and it shows up twice weirdly in the corner and super small. The swipe down is a big blank block even when there are no new notifications, the icons that used to be there are MASSIVE and clunky, and the text is SCROLLING... you literally can't read it. What dumb person made this so they had a job?? TERRIBLE design, terrible planning, inconsiderate and I'm furious. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it!!! I want to go BACK! Change it fucking now!

I hate this latest update. I now have an icon on my home screen that I can't get rid of. It places itself on top of anything I have open, and no matter where I slide the icon to, it's in my way. I tried everything I know to delete it, but it won't go away. Any suggestion????

Anonymous, 03 Nov 2021Same!!!! Please fix. Okay I figured it out! So if you swipe up more towards the middle of the screen you will get your apps. From the very bottom you will get recent items, but when I do it a little higher than the bottom I get all my apps

Just updated and it's awful! Why is everything so big? And the keys are even less responsive. I guess that is the touch screen which now sucks.

I hate this update, my phone no longer vibrates even on high volume and the large buttons now are horrible.

I cannot open the part that allows me to see ALL of my apps instead of just what I have put on the "homepage" of my phone if that makes sense. Normally when I slide up, all my apps would show up. Now it is just showing recent items.

The new update is awful. My phone is less than a year old and the display (faded peach) makes it look like something out of the ark. I am also unable to change the clock size on the lock screen. Up until now I was happy with my phone. Today, I am very unhappy. Please fix it

im honestly quite pissed with google, i have a google pixel 3 xl and it was so buggy after the android 12 update, lots errors in the system and google isnt going to fix this before they stop updates for the 3?

My issues haven't been fixed yet

After updated to 12 for my 4a, those theme colours look fade and my emoji from yellow turn brown, all look like monkey now.
Further more, even my exiting photo with yellow objects also turn Green, why ?
Anyone have similar encounter too ?
