  • After updating to Android 13, some Pixel owners are unable to wirelessly charge.
  • The issue seems to be affecting a variety of Pixel models, including the 6 series.
  • Rapid charging may have also been affected by the bug.

Android 13 just launched earlier this week, bringing with it a number of improvements to security and privacy, Bluetooth, Material You, and more. While all of this is great, something that’s not so great is it appears the new update has taken away some users’ ability to wireless charge their phones.

According to 9To5Google, over the past week, some Pixel owners have flocked to Reddit to post about the issue. Based on the threads, it appears the inability to wirelessly charge isn’t isolated to a single Pixel device. However, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL owners seem to make up the majority of reports so far.
