    You can go to https://alexa.amazon.com and that will look like the app and you'll see Help and feedback at the bottom on the left.
    That was a nice thought. Unfortunately it hasn't worked with any browser I've tried on my phone.

    I have been using it. Occasional bug or two here or there but I expect it since it is a beta. Nothing ground breaking though.

    I assume you tried cleaning the sensor. Try remapping your prints.
    Your assumption is correct. Funny thing is it is sporatic, fine for awhile then acts up for a few trys then fine for awhile. Maybe another update of the OS would fix, or I can also try a full reset which I have not done on "P" yet. Not a big deal "yet".

    Factory resets often fix a bunch of things. Sometimes it's good to clear everything out.

    Turned off the gestures. It just pisses me off. I can't get the swipes right. I either get the app drawer when I don't want it or can't get it when I do want it or the recents when I'm not trying to.....

    A
    Also not sold on the horizontal scrolling through recent apps, it seems harder to me. Same reason I don't like a horizontal app drawer.
    I can't pin down why I prefer the vertical scrolling through the Recents list than the horizontal setup, but I do too.
    I think Vertical swiping is just more intuitive. More natural to the movement of the thumb.

    Not a big fan of the gestures either. Kind of trying to get used to them anyway. Not a big time waster but it is irritating.

    Very possible, which is why I sent them an email to report the problem. Their suggestion: report the problem from within the app. Apparently reading is not high on their requirements list.
    LMAO!!!!

    Yep, that's how my thumbs move. Though now closing an app is easier. But scrolling through recent apps is slower and less precise for me. I often go past the app I want.

    I will note that both phones are running version 2.2.210230.0 of the app, which is also the latest version available on the Google Play Store (dated June 1, 2018).
    There was an update to 2.2.211814.0 (dated June 13th) but that hasn't fixed the problem for me - same hang behavior.

    Carrier Services continues to be disabled whenever I restart the Pixel XL. The app is stuck at version 12.0 and even there is an updated version, Google Play doesn't detect it. I haven't noticed any issues with the app disabled, but I would like to know why the app isn't automatically enabled when the device is restarted. Very annoying. Any ideas? TIA.

    BTW...I tried to install the latest app version manually from APK Mirror. It installs, but when the device is restarted, it reverts back to version 12.0. Very strange.

    Now I am stumped. Was going to suggest apk mirror but what is happening is truly weird

    I now have version 13.0 on my Pixel 2 XL. Carrier Services remains enabled. You might try posting in the Google+ beta community. Someone there might have some insight into this issue.

    Who is your carrier? Updates to Carrier Services could be targeted to specific sets of carriers and not any carrier whatever. I use Fi, and my version of Carrier Services is also the 12.0.19.... one from May.

    I think you might be confusing my post about Alexa with someone else's post about carrier services.

    Thanks for your responses regarding the Carrier Services issue. I don't think the carrier matters, but the hardware might. My Nexus 5 is on 13.0, but not the Essential or Pixel XL. Each device is running different versions of Android.

    Once the Carrier Services app is enabled, it remains active until I restart the device. Once I restart the Pixel XL (which isn't very often), I have to manually enable the app. More annoying than anything else.

    I'm thinking a recent update to the Google app has killed off my lockscreen/AOD weather. I noticed it was gone yesterday, and a restart doesn't bring it back.

    FWIW the latest update to the Amazon Alexa app (v2.2.212475.0 dated June 20th, 2018) didn't fix the hang problem on my device.

    Yeah, it's strange. Hard to tell if there's some other app interfering and of course it won't work in Safe mode. I don't feel like doing a Factory Reset ATM; maybe on my day off.

    Has anyone heard any rumors when Preview 4 will be released? I remembering reading somewhere that there would be two released in June but I don't know if that is true or not.
