Google Pixel 6 bug causes it to auto reject calls — what you need to know

To update: A new bug affecting Google Messagescausing battery drain and affected phones to overheat – here’s what you can do about it

There has been no shortage of bugs since the Pixel 6 was released, and they keep coming. The last one is a rather annoying problem that automatically rejects calls without notifying you.

Users reddit To complain about the latest bug affecting both Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The bug doesn’t just affect unknown numbers either, users report that calls from registered contacts are rejected without any ringtones or notifications.

It’s a particularly annoying bug because it prevents your phone from being a phone. Whether you regularly receive job calls or are expecting something important, you need the option to filter calls yourself and answer them as needed.

Instead, calls go straight to voicemail without any missed call notifications. However, call log keeps a history of missed calls and marks them as rejected.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem like a new phenomenon either, as Android Central points out in a Reddit post. December details the same problem. The issue seems to be a little more common now, but at the time of this writing, Google still hasn’t recognized the issue.

Users reported that rejected calls occurred after they disabled settings that could affect phone calls, including spam filters, do not disturb, and Wi-Fi calling. one PhoneArena The commenter claimed to have had the issue before due to Verizon spam filtering, but this time the issue seems to be happening across multiple carriers.

The nature of this error means that it is difficult for us to reproduce. I didn’t detect any mysterious rejected calls in the call log on my Pixel 6 Pro, and Tom’s Guide editor-in-chief Marc McLaren didn’t on his Pixel 6.

This is another bug that Google needs to fix. Pixel 6 owners are well aware of this pain with a series of issues plaguing the phone in the months since its launch. Reported users lost links, broken wifi, camera problemsflickering screens and more.

Google can fix most of these problems quickly, but every time a problem is fixed, another problem arises. While I’ve personally never had a serious problem with my phone, a lot of people do. And Google will have to do a much better job of preventing this kind of thing from happening.

Google Pixel 6 bug causes it to auto reject calls — what you need to know

Update: A new bug is affecting Google Messages, causing it to drain the battery and overheat affected phones – here’s what you can do about it

There’s been no shortage of bugs since the Pixel 6 launched, and they do keep coming. The latest is a rather annoying issue that automatically rejects calls without even telling you about them. 
Users have taken to Reddit to complain about the latest bug, which has been affecting both the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro. The bug doesn’t just affect unknown numbers either, with users reporting that calls from saved contacts are being rejected without any ringing or notification.
It’s a particularly infuriating bug because it stops your phone being, well, a phone. Whether you’re regularly on the receiving end of calls for work, or you’re expecting something important, you need the option to screen calls yourself and pick up when necessary. 
Instead, calls are going straight to voicemail without any sort of missed call notification. However, the call log does keep a history of missed calls, marking them as declined.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t appear to be a new phenomenon either, with Android Central pointing out a Reddit post from December detailing the same issue. The problem seems to be a little more prevalent now, but at the time of writing, Google has yet to acknowledge the issue.
Users have reported the rejected calls occur after deactivating settings that may affect phone calls, including Spam Call filters, Do Not Disturb and Wi-Fi Calling. One PhoneArena commenter claimed to have previously experienced the issue due to Verizon’s spam filtering, but this time the issue seems to be happening across multiple carriers.
The nature of this bug means it’s difficult to replicate ourselves. I didn’t spot any mystery declined calls in my Pixel 6 Pro’s call log, and neither did Tom’s Guide Editor in Chief Marc McLaren on his Pixel 6.
This is yet another bug Google is going to have to fix. Pixel 6 owners know this pain full well, with several problems affecting the phone in the months since launch. Users have reported dropped connections, broken Wi-Fi, camera issues, flickering screens, and more.
Google is able to fix most of those issues pretty quickly, but every time something gets fixed another issue rears its ugly head. While I haven’t personally experienced any serious issues with my phone, plenty of people have. And Google is going to have to do a much better job at stopping this sort of thing from happening.
