For the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, the full Android 10 update has been available for a while, but it appears to have broken Wi-Fi functionality and produced other issues for some users.
An extensive Google Support thread has quite a number of reports from dissatisfied Pixel 2 owners complaining that Wi-Fi has simply stopped working properly (via Android Authority) after updating to Android 10.
Still, Weirder, no two reports have exactly the same issues. It varies from one case to another. Some people say they can connect via their Pixel 2 to Wi-Fi networks, but then they don’t have access to the internet. In the meantime, some people can not reliably link to Wi-Fi and experience drop-outs, get kicked off and generally have a bad time.
It also appears that Bluetooth is affected, with the Android 10 update appearing to render connections inconsistent.
For many, a factory reset and downgrade to Android 9 Pie was the only solution. Google has sent replacements running Pie to people without the means to restore and downgrade their device where this was not possible. Even a factory reset isn’t a guarantee that it will fix the Pixel 2’s Wi-Fi issue — if you have issues with connectivity.
Google has yet to respond to the complaints officially, but we’ve come up with a comment and will update if we get an official response. Have you encountered problems with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity since updating to Android 10 with your Pixel 2 or 2 XL? Have you been able to solve the problems?
