Strange problems have appeared in the following software updates Google releases its latest flagship phones often enough for us Check out why Android 12 was so buggy for certain phones. Now, some Pixel owners are reporting that their phones aren’t doing a pretty basic job — ringing when a call comes in.
Contrary to the problem with Notification vibrations suddenly change without explanation, we could not confirm that. However posts on reddit (about Android Central and phone arena) and Google support forums Describe issues where some incoming calls appear to be silently declined, sending the caller straight to voicemail.
Their call log shows that an incoming call was “declined” even though the phone didn’t ring, and they all claim they didn’t have a “Do Not Disturb” setting enabled or any other feature that could block the calls.

Reports of issues have mostly come from owners of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices, but some owners of older Pixel phones stretching back to the 2XL have said they’ve seen the same thing.
