earlier this month, Google App released a February update for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, introducing some major improvements and a major bug fix that caused "while using the camera in certain situations." Rebooted. On the other hand, unfortunately, the new update also introduces new bugs.
Users complain that their WiFi automatically shuts off in the background after a few minutes, stopping much of their work, which is a source of trouble for them. It also prevents the phone from automatically connecting to available WiFi networks. The problem is so bad for some that WiFi won't turn on at all.
The sudden shutdown of the WiFi network also affects Bluetooth - some users have reported that toggling WiFi disables Bluetooth in the background.
Many solutions have been proposed for this problem, but so far, no one has been able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange. A Redditor tried to disable Adaptive Connections, which temporarily fixed the issue, but their WiFi was turned off shortly after. Others suggest resetting the network settings, but that doesn't solve the problem either.
This issue does not affect all Pixel 6 units and is not reported on older model mobiles. However, you can stop updating for a few days to see if GoogleApp comes with the correct or recommended action. In the meantime, you can check out this issue on the Pixel Community Forum.
