Since the Pixel 4 first launched, it has garnered loads of criticism for quite a lot of causes. A few of them current a serious safety flaw, reminiscent of face unlock working together with your eyes closed, whereas others are much less benign, reminiscent of the lack of 4K 60fps video recording, which is both due to lack of storage or just because Google thinks customers do not want it.
Now, there may be one other annoyance being attributable to one among the Pixel 4’s signature options. For no matter motive, Movement Sense is inflicting a faint battery icon to seem over movies when watching them in full display on the Pixel 4. Given the poor battery efficiency on the Pixel 4 telephones, maybe this can be a “feature” as a result of it appears too deliberate to be a bug. Particularly as a result of the icon itself is dimmed in an try to reduce the distraction.
Why does it solely seem in YouTube movies although? More than likely as a result of YouTube is one among the solely video apps to at present help Movement Sense gestures.
Nevertheless, in case you’re something like me, that is nothing however a continuing distraction and one you need to remove. Fortunately, it’s fairly straightforward to disable this persistent battery icon, however it is going to require turning off the “skip songs” characteristic in the Movement Sense settings.
That is not the solely factor that may very well be irritating Pixel 4 customers as of late. It was simply yesterday we reported that, regardless of the November safety replace being launched on the fourth, many customers nonetheless have not obtained it (even our personal Joe Maring). Well timed updates have all the time been a promoting level for Pixel telephones, or not less than they had been.
