The new Google Pixel 3a is displayed during the 2019 Google I/O conference at Shoreline Amphitheatre on May 07, 2019 in Mountain View, California. Google CEO Sundar Pichai delivered the opening keynote to kick off the annual Google I/O Conference that runs through May 8.

“After some investigation, we identified the root cause and determined that it impacts a very small number of devices,” said Google. 

The tech giant manufacturer added that its team is already working on a fix. However, Pixel 6 users still need to wait until the March software update arrives since the solution is bundled with it.

One of them said that his Pixel 6’s WiFi continuously shuts off. He added that the connectivity issue still happens even when the device is in sleep mode. 

The Google user further shared that he needs to manually enable his WiFi and select the network since it doesn’t connect automatically. 

But, he claimed that the issue was fixed after using Beta  3 of 12 L for 10 days, claiming that he experienced no WiFi issue after that. 

However, this still doesn’t work for all Pixel 6 owners. 

Fixing WiFi Issue on Android Device

Google’s official Support website explained that there are some signs you can check to see if your device has a bad connection. These include the following: 

  • You can’t load web pages in a browser.
  • Downloads don’t start, time out, or remain at 0%.
  • Google Play is stuck on “Loading…”

If you see these signs, then it’s time for you to troubleshoot your device’s internet connectivity. 

  • The first thing you need to do is restart your Google Pixel handset. 
  • If that doesn’t work, you can try switching from WiFi to mobile data or WiFi to airplane mode. Do this a couple more times and check if the WiFi is already working.  

In other news, Google Photos’ locked folder feature finally rolled out to non-Pixel Android devices. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro 5G received the advanced Android 12 system version.
