Magic Eraser is back on the Pixel 6 with the latest update, ghost dialing has been addressed
Last week, a bugged update removed the Magic Eraser feature from Google Photos. Now, Google Pixel 6 users get that back, alongside a fix for the ghost dialing errors affecting Google Assistant on these handsets. These two problems are now gone thanks to the latest Google app and Google Photos updates.
The Google Pixel 6 devices might have received generally positive reviews, but in many markets, the big problem is the fact that stocks are always empty. However, it looks like existing users sometimes receive buggy code from Google, as last week. Back then, Google Photos lost one of its popular features, namely the Magic Eraser tool. Thankfully, the company's software engineers were very quick in ironing out this problem.
Now, Google Photos 188.8.131.529448818 is already rolling out with the Magic Eraser back in place. In addition to this problem, Google Pixel 6 users have been sometimes facing ghost dialing errors from their Google Assistant. By upgrading the Google app to the latest version, which is 12.43.18 at the time of writing this, everything should get back to normal.
Google released the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro on October 28, after unveiling them on October 19, during the "Pixel Fall Launch" event. Both are marketed as Pixel 5's successors and feature a whole-new design with a large camera bar and two-tone colors on the back. Sadly, the list of software issues reported so far also includes, in addition to the two ones mentioned earlier, fingerprint scanner speed and precision problems, as well as a display flicker bug (to be fixed in December).

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
