Pixel 2 bug prevents Google Assistant from working on Bluetooth headphones

  Pixel 2 bug prevents Google Assistant from working on Bluetooth headphones Google’s Pixel 2 and 2 XL have had a handful of annoying bugs and flaws since launch, and now there seems to be another one preventing the Google Assistant from being used over Bluetooth headphones. Dozens of people have reported the problem on Google’s support forum, and we’ve experienced it as well. It appears to be happening across many different brands of headphones. The problem has been going on since October, but Android Police just called attention to it.

Now that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are available, we already know that the cameras offer arguably the best experience on the market today. The devices tout a single 12.3MP sensor but also feature both Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS)

Google has explained how they achieved the better results step by step. You can head over the source link provided below and read how Google achieved super smooth stabilization through Pixel 2 . Pixel 2 XL screen facing unresponsive edges, Google working on fix 4.

Google Explains How © knowyourmobile.com Google Explains How "Fused Video Stabilization" Works On Pixel 2 The Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL have truly amazing cameras. For a point and shoot setup, both handsets are at the top of the market, easily. They are also very impressive when it comes to video capture as well.

And this epic performance is helped along (in a big way) by Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), which ensure shots and video come out looking amazing, regardless of where you’re shooting.

In a bid to demonstrate just what a difference these two technologies make when shooting video, Google has released some footage that was shot on the back of a motorcycle.

  Pixel 2 bug prevents Google Assistant from working on Bluetooth headphones Google’s Pixel 2 and 2 XL have had a handful of annoying bugs and flaws since launch, and now there seems to be another one preventing the Google Assistant from being used over Bluetooth headphones. Dozens of people have reported the problem on Google’s support forum, and we’ve experienced it as well. It appears to be happening across many different brands of headphones. The problem has been going on since October, but Android Police just called attention to it.

We recall that Google has decided to point to a combination of optical image stabilizer (OIS) and EIS, realizing what was called Fused Video Stabilization . With a blog post on the developer blog, the Google team has decided to explain how engineers have come to that solution and what aspects

Google explains how they combined three different techniques to create Fused Video Stabilization for the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. How to Unlock Bootloader and Root the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

As you can see, without Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), the footage looks terrible, is shaky, and would be, in most cases, unusable. Once you switch it on, however, it’s a different story entirely – it looks almost cinema-grade in how smooth it is.

Google calls this combination of technology Fused Video Stabilization, which it recently detailed over on its official blog:

“With Fused Video Stabilization, both OIS and EIS are enabled simultaneously during video recording to address all the issues mentioned above. Our solution has three processing stages as shown in the system diagram below. The first processing stage, motion analysis, extracts the gyroscope signal, the OIS motion, and other properties to estimate the camera motion precisely. Then, the motion filtering stage combines machine learning and signal processing to predict a person’s intention in moving the camera. Finally, in the frame synthesis stage, we model and remove the rolling shutter and focus breathing distortion. With Fused Video Stabilization, the videos from Pixel 2 have less motion blur and look more natural. The solution is efficient enough to run in all video modes, such as 60fps or 4K recording.”

You can read the full breakdown of the tech over on Google’s blog right now. Be warned though: it’s pretty technical and definitely not for the fainthearted or those averse to technical reports.

Apple reminds iPhone X owners they're using an OLED display .
Cupertino is dealing with OLED technology's technical limits for the first time.The company explains that the "slight shifts in color and hue" when viewing the screen off-angle (read: not straight on) are perfectly normal. It also says OLEDs exhibit slight visual changes with long-term use, such as showing remnants of a high-contrast image displayed on the screen for extended periods of time even when it's already showing another image.
