Google puts Pixel power in your Hands with diagnostics and repair tools
Google’s move to empower users with self-diagnosis and repair options is a significant step towards greater transparency and user control over their devices. Here’s a breakdown of what’s new:
On-device diagnostics tool
This handy app, accessible by dialing ##7287#*# in the phone app, lets you check your phone’s health. You can run various tests like battery, display, sensors, and audio to identify potential issues before or after a repair.
This app is your phone’s MRI, scanning its vital organs to pinpoint the culprit behind those glitches. No more guesswork or endless online forums – the app points you straight to the fix, making you feel like a tech whiz.
Detailed repair manuals
Google has made official repair manuals available for download in English and French, initially for the Pixel Fold, Pixel 8, and Pixel 8 Pro. These manuals, written for both tech gurus and curious newbies, walk you through common fixes step-by-step, with clear instructions and diagrams that even a caveman could understand.
This self-repair revolution isn’t just about saving time and money. It’s a win-win for everyone involved:
