Google starts eSIM program for phone makers

Google starts eSIM program for phone makers

Well, this new offer on the Google Pixel 3 is just what you've been waiting for. We gave it a positive review ourselves, but it was impossible to ignore the elephant in the room: Google's new phones were fundamentally broken. More software solutions mean more potential bugs to break your phone. Google has announced in a blog post that the Pixel 3 and 3XL will soon be available with eSIM support (hard luck to anyone who's already bought one, then). Right now, for example, you can save up to 40% of select hotels, get 3 free months of YouTube Premium, and 20% off Google Express orders. If you've been frustrated with your Pixel up to this point, you should have an easier time with the phone once the update is applied.


While the root cause has not been revealed, prior to the patch, some Pixel 3 owners ran into situations where apps would close or shut down seemingly at random, sometimes even in the middle of an operation. Some users reported that music playing in the background would stop when they took a picture - that's how awful the Pixel 3 was at handling RAM. Other notable inclusions include improved Android Auto compatibility, Bluetooth patches, camera improvements, improved Always On Display triggering, and improved notifications. If you haven't seen the email for some reason, don't worry: you can still get the Google Pixel 3 deal by logging in to your Google One account. The update should be available on your Pixel today.
