Google fixes Bluetooth issue on Pixel devices

A number of Google Pixel (and Pixel XL) users have been experiencing a Bluetooth problem that randomly caused the radio to turn off without warning, causing accessories to disconnect and proved to be most annoying while streaming music to an external speaker. Thankfully Google is issuing a fix and it will reach affected users via a Google Play Services Update.

The problem first appeared around the time of Googles release of the February Security Patch. Even the March Security Patch did not rectify the Bluetooth issue. Finally today, a fellow Googler posted in the product forum relevant to the issue that Google was pushing a server-side fix for the problem at hand.

As mentioned, a Google Play Services update will gradually roll out over the next several days, so no further action will be needed from those affected as Google Play Updates happen seamlessly in the background.
