Looks like the Android 8.1 update has brought along some annoying issues for users of Google’s Pixel and Nexus branded devices. A large number of reports on Reddit as well as the company’s own online forums indicate users are facing swipe-related problems with their units post the update.
Reports say actions like swiping up to bring lock screen, swiping to dismiss lock screen notifications, or swiping to answer or decline calls not only require extra effort, but multiple tries as well, thus making the entire user experience quite annoying.
For its part, Google has just said it’s looking into the problem. So no official acknowledgement yet, and hence no information on when the problem will be fixed.[“Source-timesofindia”]
