Pixel 2 USB-C Headphone Jack Adapter Not Working? Try These Solutions

Pixel 2 USB-C Headphone Jack Adapter Not Working? Try These Solutions

It's possible that the problem might have been caused by the USB-C port on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. While there are bundled adaptors for people still wanting to take advantage of their analogue headphone cables, people have started reporting that they're not always working properly.

We all know that Google's Pixel 2 comes sans-headphone jack, following in the footsteps of Apple and other phone companies that don't have the same power over headlines. Some users have claimed the issue to be fixed after the latest software update, while some stated that it works only in Safe Mode.

This is not a good year for Google Pixel 2 XL smartphone, from the point of the phone launch to till date there are many problems which are evolving around the Google Pixel 2 XL. Usually, I request some music, only to have Spotify play out of Google Home and Google Music play from my Pixel 2 XL.


This is not the first time that people have been facing problems with the Google Pixel 2 series smartphones, that were unveiled by the search giant in October.

Google support recommends users to restart the device in safe mode and then check if the problem persists. Once that is accomplished, go to Settings- System- Developer Options- Networking- Select USB configuration and then Audio Source from the pop-up list.

Sadly, for Pixel 2 XL owners, the problems haven't ended there. The latest one is the broken fingerprint scanner after updating to latest Android Oreo 8.1 operating system. Others have only found relief by rebooting their phones, which seems to alleviate the issue, but only for a short time.

Google hasn't officially addressed the issue yet, nor has it confirmed whether this is software-related. It seems the delay is about a second long on average, but even a second-long delay can feel like ages when you're frequently unlocking your phone.
