Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro Reportedly Crash on Certain YouTube Videos

Google's Pixel 7 and 7 Pro have been making headlines recently for all the wrong reasons, with reports of software bugs and hardware issues plaguing the devices since their release a few months ago. While not as severe as some of the other problems reported, a new issue has surfaced, affecting select Pixel 7 and 7 Pro units when attempting to play certain YouTube videos.

Many users have reported that playing an innocuous YouTube video causes their Pixel 7 or 7 Pro to crash and reboot. This issue has also been reported for select Pixel 6, 6 Pro, and 6a devices, but older models seem to be unaffected. The problematic video in question dates back to January 13, 2021, and there is no evidence to suggest that it contains any malware or harmful software.

While the issue is not as severe as some of the other problems reported, it is still an inconvenience for users. The device quickly recovers after crashing without losing any data, but it may cause a temporary loss of connection to the cellular network, requiring a manual reboot.

It's important to note that the issue can be easily avoided by simply not playing the problematic YouTube video. As such, it's recommended that users avoid playing the 1979 sci-fi movie "Alien" in 4K HDR, as this is the video that seems to be causing the problem.

Overall, the issue seems to be a minor inconvenience for Pixel 7 and 7 Pro users, and Google will likely release a software update to fix the problem. In the meantime, users should be aware of the issue and avoid playing the problematic video to prevent their device from crashing and rebooting.
