Pixel 6 phones will receive an update fixing

(Pocket-lint) – Google’s flagship phones, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, have unfortunately been prone to a number of bugs lately.

Fortunately, Google has been hard at work, pushing out updates that keep things running smoothly.

The latest bug, reported by Pixel users on Reddit, sees the Google Messages app causing the camera to run constantly in the background.

As you can imagine, having the camera on all the time causes the phone to heat up significantly, and it also drains your battery pretty quickly.

If you run into these issues, the good news is that there are easy workarounds, despite how annoying it is.

First, you can just close the Messages app, but you’ll have to do this every time you reply to a message – or expect a fried phone with a dead battery.

A better solution is to remove the camera permissions from the Messages app, which should prevent the bug from occurring. The obvious downside is that you won’t be able to take photos in Messages.

You won’t need these workarounds for long, as The Verge reports that the issue has been identified by Google and a fix has already started rolling out.

So keep an eye out for app updates, and keep your fingers crossed that everything goes well from now on.
