Two of Google’s Pixel-exclusive features have been disabled due to bugs

Enrique, 23 December 2021

Pixel owners have noticed that Google has taken its time to push out the December Feature Drop update for Pixels and now we can speculate the possible reason for this. Meanwhile, Google has confirmed that it has had to disable two Pixel-exclusive features following the December update on Google Pixel phones.

Two of Google’s Pixel-exclusive features have been disabled due to bugs

Google has confirmed on a Google Support forum that it has had to disable Hold For Me and Call Screen features from the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro until a major bug from the December update has been addressed.

In light of a bug in the December Android update, we are disabling Hold for Me and Call Screening on Pixel 6 devices running on Android S December QPR release (e.g. SQ1D.211205.016.A4) (follow below instructions to identify Android build for your phone) until we fix the underlying problems. Thanks for those of you who reported this issue.

Google hasn’t explained what bug has caused it to disable one of our favorite Pixel features. In any case, the Google employee explains that the issue is actively being worked on, though no timeframe has been given.
