    Is anyone else on Q4 beta having screen flickering/flashes (just briefly) when transitioning between apps? Essentially, when you have 2+ apps open and you switch between them, the app you are switching to opens briefly then flashes the home screen before going back to the app. It's quite annoying, to say the least. It's hard to describe, but I'm not the only with the same issue: search - redit pixel 2 on beta fickers when switching apps

    The culprit is the Google App, I believe, as the flicker only used to happen when I was on the Beta Google App, but downgrading to the public version solved the issue. At least until yesterday. With yesterday's public update, (7/2) the flickering has started once more. Only removing all updates from the Google App resolves it. Unfortunately, the app automatically updates...

    Maybe some public awareness will get Google's attention?

    No, but creating an issue (upper left in red) at the Q Beta Issue Tracker will. (They may even ask you for a debug dump to see exactly what's happening. [They'll give you instructions on how to do it and where to send the link to it (you put it on Drive).])

    Yeah, I don't get it myself. I tried uninstalling the updates for the application however I'm anal about having all my applications up-to-date in my play store. Mine is being update right now. I'm not sure why the updates to the application is causing multitasking to become janky. Makes no sense to me whatsoever.

    I definitely had this and the Google app is the culprit. Uninstalled the update and Q behavior is normal. Sent a bug report.

    You know also tell you this much, when you uninstall the updates for the newest latest Google application in the Play store, the phone feels smoother overall. now, I'm not so sure why it has such an effect overall in the use experience and it shouldn't but it does.

    And you're absolutely correct. I don't get why one system core application purely affects the entire user experience. I forced myself to uninstall the updates forward in the Play store and printing God that beta 5 fixes this issue overall

    You can disable Google app , but it disables Google feed swipe to left , so it's deeply intergrated. Just like any bugged app can cause big issue this one no different.

    Yep yep, so far so good. I think that way I use ADB debugging to hide the little navigation bar just sure bar it messed up the smoothness for my gestures going to the home screen. There's a 2 second pause delay from when I'm in an application until when I swipe up and go to the home screen. I'm going to have to reset the command back to factory default and have my gesture bar on the bottom to see if that fixes the two second pause delay

    although the one thing I'm not trying to figure out is why on the ambient display the battery meter doesn't always show. It's weird.
