Since I upgraded my Pixel 4a to Android 13 I’m seeing way more issues with the Android Companion App; not sure, though, if this can be addressed in the app or if it’s a device issue.
The biggest changes for me are right now:
- The app freezes or restarts itself way more often than it did with Android 12; while it was once or twice a week before, it’s now multiple times per day that the app stops by itself or needs to be ‘forced stopped’ before it will work again.
- Notifications seem to show up way slower/later under Android 13 than before; I sometimes receive notifications that are timestamped by the HA with a 10-12 minute delay.
Anybody else seeing these or similar issues?
Looking especially for feedback from Pixel 4a users, of course.
Just to be clear: this is not bashing the app, I’m just trying to figure out if Google introduced some additional issues with this ‘feature release’ which seems to have added nothing but new bugs to my device.
Here’s just one example that was allegedly reported during beta testing, but Google didn’t bother to fix it for the full release: Pixel 4a(android 13) call issues when using a wired earphones with mic - Google Pixel Community
