According to some users on the Google Product Forums, a fix for this problem doesn't appear to be present in the developer preview for Android 8.1, so we may be waiting on a fix for a while. One of the users wrote,"I have the new Pixel 2 (not XL) and the mic stopped working for me".

For some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users, the microphone malfunction issue can be fixed by blowing up in the speaker which may sound old school but until Google responds, this may be the best bet. People are reporting an issue with the display flashing when it is switched off or on.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners are complaining about a bug that prevents Google Assistant from working with Bluetooth headphones, Android Police first spotted. Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge.

"[.] every time that Google Assistant is summoned up and any bluetooth headset is connected, then Assistant will NOT detect audio neither from bluetooth headset nor from phone, said one user in the forum".

Well, these are based on mere speculations and we have to say that it is not LG's fault that the Pixel 2 came out with a major issue.

A software update has been rolled out in an attempt to fix the hardware, with software. Google is yet to release an official statement on the new issue. This seemingly confirms that the screen flashing issue is related to software.
