Some Google Pixels stopped receiving messages after Oreo update

Google Pixel 2 Now Playing AmbientSense

Lately, some users have reported issues with the Google Pixel not receiving text messages on their devices. The user went on to explain the troubleshooting steps he had taken, including the uninstallation of all apps that were installed before the problem arose, disabling and re-enabling Google Message, and so forth. The issue has apparently been present for some time, but came under the limelight recently in the product forums. XDA Developers tested the SDK on Pixel XL running Android 8.0 and Galaxy Note 8 running Android 7.1 Nougat, and it seems to work seamlessly on these devices.

One of the features of the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL that flew under the radar a bit was the inclusion of eSIM. eSIM stands for Embedded SIM and it replaces the need ... Interestingly, those who have their account linked to other devices such as tablets or any other Android device can still receive SMS messages on these other devices.

Pixel Launcher from Pixel 2 can be installed on many Android devices.

Since the aforementioned post, a number of other Pixel users also reported the same problem, but majority didn't specify if they were experiencing the issue only on Verizon or on other carriers as well, which makes it hard to tell if this problem is limited to a single mobile operator.

While Google is still working on a fix, those affected can try rebooting their Google Pixel or Pixel XL phone, but there is no guarantee this will work. "I'll keep you all posted!", the community manager said.

It looks like the Google Pixel users could easily resolve this issue after rebooting or factory resetting the phone.
