Some People Are Reporting Google's USB-C Headphone Adaptors Aren't Working

Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL headphone adapter won't work on some units

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, both, do not have a 3.5mm headphone jack and Google has bundled a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter to help users connect their "legacy" headphones.

Google started rolling out the Android 8.1 Oreo update earlier this month to supported Pixel and Nexus family of devices. Following user reports of problems with the OLED display, unusual effects when taking photos of LED lights, seemingly muted microphones, a mysterious buzzing noise, random reboots, and crashes in Android Auto mode, it has been a tumultuous time for Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners. Some users say that rebooting the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL will temporarily fix the issue, as pointed out by Android Police.

A number of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners have reported on the Pixel User Community forums that the included headphone adapter is not working on their phones. According to multiple complaints over at Google's Product Forums, the phones fail to recognize the adapter or any pair of headphones connected to it, and simply continue to play media through the built-in speakers.

Typical requests are clothing for youths and small toys. "These are families that are in need", he said. "It went well", he said. The Wheeling Salvation Army crossed Ohio County off their list for the Angel Tree, presenting the families with their gifts.

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. However, Google is yet to comment it on this issue, a new software update should resolve this issue. This particular solution works in some cases, but not all. Just the other day, we told you how several Pixel 2 XL owners noticed that their fingerprint scanner was taking longer to unlock their handsets following the update to Android 8.1. Once that's done, users will go back to Settings, tap System Developer options Networking Select USB configuration and then select Audio Source.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have had their fair share of hardware and software issues ever since launch. Putting the Pixel 2 in developer mode makes it easier for the phone to know what the USB-C port is being used for. One of the users mentions that he has tried three different dongles and the problem is still present.

The omission of the 3.5 mm headphone jack has been increasing among smartphones as of late.
