Google Assistant got plenty of attention at the company’s Pixel 4 event on Tuesday. however, it’s found itself in hot water with Android phone users. Some Android smartphone and tablet users are reporting a bug with Google Assistant. That causes their device’s screen to stay powered on indefinitely after hearing the wake phrase ‘Hey Google‘, which could cause a host of problems from battery drain to permanent screen damage.
According to the report, the problem has been known since September, where it popped up in Google support forums. For now, it appears to be particularly troublesome on Pixel phones and Google Homes devices but exactly why is unknown. Indeed, Google has not commented on the problem and there’s no telling when a fix may be released.
Several staff members fro Android Police noticed that their phone. And tablets were not going back to sleep after recognizing that the wake command was intended for a different device.
This is a serious battery drain and potential security risk as it leaves the device unlocked. It could also lead to images being burned into the screens of LCD devices.
For now, users should limit their use of Google Assistant until a fix is announced. And although it only appears to affect Google devices at the moment, one OnePlus 6T user reported the same problem, so even if you are using other devices, keep an eye on Assistant.
