I too have the swipe issue on my HTC 11+ just after an update, March 15
I also have same problem with call and web pages up down scrolling..
unlock swipe already fixed but swipe to answer calls still remains !
It's also, contrary to the impression the article gives, by no means all phones. I'd be interested to know what the fraction is, but have experienced nothing like this myself.
Poor Orrin..... Must be having nightmares about Pixel issues.....
The issue is not just for Pixel/Nexus devices, its with Oreo 8.1
The only workaround is to pick up call from Notifications panel
opt, 10 Jan 2018please don't tell me that google had any issues on the pixel device since 2017. It's better that negative issues are brought to light, as opposed to leaving them in the dark . I can't tell if you did not know Pixel 2 products are experiencing new found 2018 issues or were being sarcastic.
