This bug makes the devices very difficult to use
Android 14 crash ‘wreaks havoc’ on Pixel smartphones, Google investigates
The issue affects users who have multiple profiles. Many Pixel users complain that the main account, when set up, cannot access the storage, while the secondary account can. Problems range from missing apps to constant crashes and completely locking out the internal memory of one of the device’s user accounts. A Google spokesperson said the team is “working diligently to fix” the glitch.
The first complaints began to come mainly from Pixel 6 owners who encountered the problem when the update began to roll out. Initially, Google ignored the problem and it quickly began to spread to other Pixel series smartphones. There are now almost half a thousand messages in Google’s problem-tracking system.
Moreover, some users insert log files or screenshots. Others said they couldn’t provide screenshots because the phone said it didn’t have free space to save them. Some have compared the experience to being infected with ransomware.
