    I haven't had any issues answering calls but ignoring calls took some effort. I kept swiping down and it would not ignore. The icon placement is so close to the bottom of the phone that I couldn't tell if it was a bug with swiping or if it was incorrectly placed with not enough swiping distance. It did work on the second phone call that I tried it on, but I have only tried on those 2 calls so far.

    I don't know why, but it got much worse past week, especially swiping notification shade from lockscreen.
    Sometimes it takes about 5 or 6 times to pull down until it works 😡
    (p2 8.1)
    Really annoying! hope google will fix this stupid issue.

    What model Pixel are you guys using?
    I have a Pixel 2 XL 128
    Android version 8.1.0
    Security patch level: January 5, 2018
    No screen protector used.
    My swiping the notification shade never fails.
    In fact the swiping motion, both up and down, works like it should everywhere.
    Are you using a screen protector?
    Is your screen clean?

    I have experienced the same swiping issues. I just did a factory reset after calling Google support. So far, it seems to have fixed the problem.

    No screen protector, screen always clean..
    Still, swiping from lockscreen became a nightmare.

    If you contact Google, they will ask you to do a "factory reset" to eliminate any rogue app interference.
    If it were mine, I would do a factory reset before even calling them.
    If that doesn't solve the problem, Google should send you a replacement.

    I'm having the same issue and it is becoming increasingly annoying. I'm going to try a factory reset after the next security patch and see if it clears up. I just tried to unlock the phone and it took six swipes to do it.

    It's a known issue hopefully a fix will be here soon

    February security update is out and fixing the swipe issue is not on the list from what I've seen..
    I hope it's a silent fix 😄

    I haven't received the February patch yet. For anybody that has, does the patch fix the swiping issue? I know that it is not listed in update description, but I am hopeful that it was fixed nonetheless as it makes using the phone very difficult. Thanks.

    After using the phone since last night and updating to February patch I can say for me the swiping is fixed. Used to have to swipe all the way up on the lock screen and now it's like 1/4 at the most.

    Anybody else? I still haven't gotten the update so I am curious if others have found the swiping problem resolved.

    Safe to say that February security update DIDN'T solve my swipe issue ☹️

    I only had swiping issues when trying to answer or reject phone calls. Some of the time. Other times it works fine. However, nothing has changed with the February patch

    The February patch did not change the swiping issue for me.

    Actually I spoke too soon. Swiping is still an issue. Seemed a little better at first but it's actually not any better at all.
