Google has confirmed that it is aware of a memory management issue causing unexpected app crashes on the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, and it plans to fix it with an upcoming software update, according to 9to5Google.

While the fix is not included in the company’s November update, which came out today, it sounds as if it should be arriving with December’s update. Google told 9to5Google that the fix should arrive “in the coming weeks” and will be designed to “keep background apps from being prematurely closed.” 


(The November update does, however, fix a wireless charging issue where the Pixel 3 would say it was charging at full speed when using a non-Google charger, which was not in fact the case. Android Police says third-party chargers should now display the words “charging slowly” to indicate the halved wattage rate, from 10W to 5W.)

This particular RAM issue seemed to arise when users combined actions from multiple apps, like opening the more memory-intensive Pixel 3 camera while running Spotify, an action that caused some devices to force quit Spotify to make room for Google’s artificial intelligence-powered camera. While 4GB of RAM is pretty industry standard for a flagship in 2018, it is certainly more than enough to handle using a camera and streaming music at the same time, which suggests it is in fact a software bug of sorts Google should have no trouble ironing out.
