Users had reported several audio issues with the Google Pixel
Google Pixel users will be able to enjoy crystal-clear audio on their devices thanks to a new update from the company.
The company’s Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones have been well-received by mobile fans across the world, combining top-level hardware with the latest version of Google’s Android Nougat software.
However some users had complained of audio distortion issues when listening to music or other sounds at high volumes.
This included worrying snapping or popping noises across a number of different apps and media services.

But Google has now moved to fix the issues with the release of its monthly security patch.
The February edition of the patch, which is available to download now, apparently solves the problem, which first revealed itself late last year, according to several users on Reddit.
However users who installed the 7.1.2 Developer Preview are still affected by the issue, with several taking to Reddit to confirm that the problem is still in place.

A glitch reportedly caused the camera app software to freeze and lock-up, with pink and purple lines also appearing across the display for some users.
Shooting video with the Google Pixel can also be affected by the same glitch, although the company claimed to have fixed the problem with another recent software update.
The Google Pixel has been a runaway success for Google since its launch last October.
In fact, UK users are still unable to get their hands on the Pixel XL from Google’s website, although the more basic Pixel smartphone is on sale now starting from £599.
