The bad news is that if you didn't drop $159 back in early October, sight-unseen, and now you're regretting that decision, it'll be over a month until new Pixel Bud orders start shipping, according to Google's retail site. Specifically, the Pixel 2 XL fails to detect touch near the edges of the screen, thus the devices do not perform the necessary actions. The issue was first mentioned on the Pixel User Community forum and the user who first mentioned it noted that when he slid a finger across the curved edges, the screen responded as it should.

For now, it appears that the unresponsive screen edges of Google Pixel 2 XL have nothing to do with hardware defects. The assumption is that the issue causing the problem is overzealous accidental touch protection logic, something easily fixable with an OTA update. Pixel buds let you talk to Google Assistant and receive notifications in your ears.
