    There are some feature improvements or additions to features. See video.

    Just downloaded and installed. It's not the most feature packed feature update, but it's better than just a plain old security patch.

    This may have nothing to do with the March update but I'm noticing that in the Feed/Discover stories that I cannot dismiss cards any more by tapping on the lower right three dot button. I would need to mark a card "Not interested in this story" which I generally don't want to do as I assume that would limit my seeing similar stories in the future.

    I still have the Hide This Story option.

    Well...the “feature” that I received from the March update was that I lost the ability to charge my pixel 4 using my pixel stand. Wonderful!

    Sorry to hear that. What happens when you place it on the stand? What have you done so far to try and resolve the issue?

    Well I have cleared out the storage and cache in the pixel stand restarted the pixel and powered down/up the stand. No joy.

    I posted this issue in the google pixel support community a week ago no replies.

    When I place the pixel on the stand and it does the starburst and then nothing. I check on it in the morning it never charged.

    Any access to a third party charger stand? This might help to find out if the problem is the phone or the charger. I have the update and my Anker still charges my XL.

    My phone received a Pixel Stand update today. Maybe this update will fix the charging issue?!

    I had the same hope. Sadly nope. I’m now hoping that April does not fool me!

    What about the question above, do you have access to a different wireless charger to test? I'm thinking this isn't software and a monthly update isn't going to help. Just my guess, this doesn't seem to be a common issue. This might be a weird hardware) software failure on your phone. If you can test in a different wireless charger that would help identify if it's just the Pixel Stand or an issue with wireless charging in general on your phone

    What it's worth, I had a complete failure of the wireless charging on the phone. Google, was kind enough to send me a new phone.

    "Hide this story" is missing from all cards in my Discover feed. I searched for hours, at first hoping to find a solution, then just ANY kind of confirmation that this feature has indeed been removed. The closest I got was an article, I think from 2019, that said Google added a heart icon so one can give feedback w/o going to the overflow menu. It said this may indicate they will remove "hide this story" in the future. I guess that future is now and Google won't let us clean up our feed without providing feedback. First they kill the swipe gesture, now they are extracting our opinions to clean our feed. I guess it's true: If we're not paying for the product, then we ARE the product. Sigh.

    If you tap on the three dots on the right it shows the screen below. Maybe "not interested" replaces hide this story.

    To me, "not interested" sounds like the particular subject matter will be remembered by Google and, going forward, you'll see less of that type of story. I'm also still missing "hide this story" on all my cards so I've just stopped dismissing cards. I just scroll down the feed and refresh as needed.
