Google ends sales of the Pixel 2 and 2 XL

The back of the Google Pixel 3 Lite

By moving the Pixel 2 off its store, Google now shifts all of its focus to the Pixel 3 and 3 XL. The company's latest Android Q Beta 2 update is here and our prayers may have been heard. Not just that, but the Android parent is always improving the performances of Google Assistant through new updates and features. It's got a name now - Bubbles. Whereas the way multitasking now works is by shuffling through "cards", Bubbles lets individual apps float onscreen as Chat Heads-like popups.

"This Certified Refurbished product has been tested and certified to work and look like new, with minimal to no signs of wear, by a specialized third-party seller approved by Amazon". That means if it's implemented, there'd be no learning curve at all. Developers at XDA Developers have also noticed that the update enables the use of dual-SIM on the Pixel 3, an iPhone X-style gesture bar and additional support for folding phones. They can provide quick access to portable UI like notes, translations and appear as visual reminders of tasks.

Google has stopped selling the Pixel 2
Google in its generic statement says that "no reports of active customer exploitation or abuse" through the surfaced issues. The update is also claimed to improve Bluetooth connectivity on the first-generation Pixel and Pixel XL models.

Less than a month after the release of Beta 1, the second beta has now arrived packing a few improvements including a notification improvement called Bubbles, a foldable emulator feature, and some changes to Android's APIs. Instead of split-screening, which is something that several Android devices tout, Bubbles allows the secondary app to "float" above the primary one in a smaller window.

Google has released its annual Android Security and Privacy report for 2018 outlining the overall health and risks its popular and most widely ecosystem faced in the year. It's a small yet incredibly important addition that will help prevent accidentally posting embarrassing photos online. Pixel Phone 3 XL Smartphones in Just Black with 64GB of storage are down to just $522 and change right now.
