Google Pixel 2 issue makes Assistant unavailable with Bluetooth headphones

Some Pixel 2 XL touchscreens are unresponsive near the edges, but a fix is coming

The Pixel 2 XL display issues have not yet stopped, with new reports from owners of the LG-made smartphone complaining of an unresponsive touchscreen along the edges.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones have widely been hailed as an outstanding flagship device based on early reviews. It may be performing its duties a bit too well, preventing owners from accessing the sides of their Pixel 2 XL in their day-to-day life while playing games or interacting with apps. Now, multiple users have experienced trouble in operating the Google Assistant via Bluetooth headphones in Pixel 2 devices, however, Pixel 2 XL customers have reported unresponsive touch near the edges of the display. However, tapping on the edges is not always detected by the handset. A pixel 2 XL community manager by name Orrin has posted on the thread to inform people that the Pixel team is already investigating the problem and will come up with a fix via an upcoming over-the-air (OTA) software update.

This is likely caused by Google's software being a little aggressive when it comes to rejecting accidental touches.
