    We will see what happens. What I am wondering is if we are still going to see any kind of Sept update or is that already implemented in Oreo (Verizon here). If we do maybe that will straighten things out a bit or else I noticed that some of my major apps that are draining my battery such as blue mail and a few others have not been updated in awhile. This may be clashing with something thus consuming more battery. Will give it another day or two, if I can hold out that long and if no change then I will have to resort to a factory reset. Also noticed a drop in my signal since being on Oreo too. Had 4 replacement pixels and the last one was finally acceptable to me. I was always in about the -96-100 dBm range. Lately since Oreo I am seeing it jump to -112 and higher again as with my last 3 pixels. Don't know what is causing that, but since July up until Oreo last week I was finally happy without signal issues. Seems to be starting all over again for me

    I must say battery wise mine seems fine, no change from where I was before.

    Also having the signal drops as well, was lucky enough to not have the issues previously with my VZ Pixel but have definitely noticed a drop with 8.0

    Google Play is automatically putting shortcuts on the home screen when downloading a new app. I don't see a setting in the play store to turn that off now.

    That's under settings on the home screen if you pinch the home screen or a long press and go to settings it's in there

    How do I view a list of old notifications?

    Every once in a while I get a vibrate and there is nothing is new in notifications. I specifically turn off vibrate for notifications so I don't think it's any of my usual stuff.

    I'm noticing that too, and I think it vibrates anytime a signal comes and goes whether WiFi or cellular, I'm in a fringe cellular area so I get the mystery vibrate a lot.

    Data usage is no longer a graph. Now I have no idea of about when the data was used.

    Edit, apparently it's a couple taps deeper now.

    It's things like this that make me wonder sometimes if it's really worth the trouble having a phone that gets the updates before anyone else does. I understand the O/S is new and it is going to take time to roll out things and make changes, but with google they fix one thing and break something else in the process. The fixes either take a long time to come, or they never come and then google hits us with the infamous line of " That issue has been addressed or this is the first we are hearing of such thing. I am no apple fan boy by any means but that is what makes apple so great at what they do.

    While things are not perfect with apple either, at least the issues get addressed and when fixes come, they WORK

    Part of the problem with the early update cycle is that it's unusual. So you get the new OS as soon as it released but lot of devs are slow to update their apps accordingly. They're looking at the mass market devices by Samsung, for example, that are months away from an update. Devs don't feel the pressure to act sooner. Nexus/Pixel owners are the minority. Once the big manufacturers are on the update train, you'll see some changes.

    Another gripe of mine is that my Newstand widget won't respond to page fwd/back taps. I have to open then close the widget before I can page through it. Weird.

    Ok on the car Bluetooth controls not working under 8; go into developer options and AVRCP to 1.6, or try the three options there. It appears to have worked for me.

    My pixel is obviously much slower since the update. My guess is older unsupported apps clogging things up. Bummed - it was still smooth as silk one year in.

    I'll try this tomorrow. I was really bummed because my bluetooth worked perfectly in the truck (16 Tacoma), but once I switched to oreo it went to hell.
