Google is actively investigating and planning to address a bug in Android 14 that has impacted certain Pixel phones, particularly Pixel 6 devices, following the rollout of the Android 14 update. Users reported a range of issues, from missing apps to being locked out of their device's internal storage on user accounts.

The issues included some users experiencing boot loops, others being stuck on a "Pixel is starting..." message, and some users being able to access their phones. Users also noted that they couldn't provide on-device screenshots because the phone reported insufficient available storage.
