Recall that Google unveiled the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro during its Oct. 19 Pixel event. The updated Pixel smartphone was unveiled, featuring a sleek, unique design with Google Tensor technology. Google’s newest Pixel update is the company’s first chip to ship with Android 12. These cellphones are said to be lightning-fast, extraordinarily intelligent, and uniquely secure for you.

However, complaints have surfaced since the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were launched. Last month, a reviewer complained that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were frequently selective performance or slow to recognize user print. As first reported by XDA Developers, Google quietly rolled out a Pixel 6 update that addresses the device’s fingerprint scanner issues. The update’s details were confirmed in a post on Google’s page, which includes “minor bug fixes and performance improvements for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro smartphones’ fingerprint sensor.” The post did not specify how the sensor was improved in detail.

Google stated last month in response to a reviewer’s complaint that the scanner’s “enhanced security algorithms” may have resulted in sluggish or unreliable performance. Google did not specify whether the scanner’s performance was related to the software or hardware of the device. Many took Google’s initial response to imply that the scanner should be slow for security features to function correctly.

Given that Google has already notified consumers of the problem, the likelihood is that it was a software-related issue. According to The Verge’s performance test of Google’s devices. The results indicate that users’ experiences with the fingerprint scanner have improved significantly after installing the Pixel 6 upgrade.
