Google Fixes Dodgy Pixel 6 Fingerprint Sensor

Google has released an out-of-cycle update aimed at fixing one of the numerous flaws users found with the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro: namely that the fingerprint sensor is slow and unresponsive.

This feature was stifled due to “enhanced security algorithms”, according to a spokesperson from the company, but this is cold comfort to those who just wanna get into their new device.

“In some instances, these added protections can take longer to verify or require more direct contact with the sensor,” Google claimed, after receiving many updates.

The good news: this seems to be fixed. Users are reporting it works a lot better, and the changelog, as published by Verizon, says the update “improves the performance of your device’s fingerprint sensor.”
