Google says that Pixel 2 random reboots may be fixed in Android 8.1 DP2

Lately, we’ve been hearing reports of Pixel 2s and Pixel 2 XLs randomly rebooting. Having your phone restart itself multiple times throughout the day is obviously pretty infuriating, and many were dissatisfied when they heard that this would be fixed ‘in the coming weeks.’ However, the issue may have already been resolved in Android 8.1 Oreo’s Developer Preview 2, according to a Google employee.

Here’s the latest response to the issue on Google’s Issue Tracker:

Here’s the changelog (for vBV10127_RC0011) direct from Google.

  • Family Wi-Fi: Delay a schedule for 30 minutes, even after it starts.
