A handy Telegram feature is disabling the Pixel 6 series' smooth display

Telegram's "raise to speak" feature apparently locks the phone's display to a 60Hz refresh rate when enabled.

What you need to know

  • The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are reportedly being locked to a 60Hz refresh rate for some Telegram users.
  • Telegram's "raise to speak" feature is apparently responsible for the issue.
  • There's currently no official fix for the problem, except disabling the messaging app's feature.

The Pixel 6 series is Google's answer to the best Android phones that have so far been released this year, and for obvious reasons. The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro tick all the right boxes and undercut the competition with robust specs, including a powerful custom-built chipset and a smooth display.

However, according to Mishaal Rahman, a strange Telegram issue is currently causing some Pixel 6 phones to be stuck on a 60Hz refresh rate while in the app. The problem was first brought to light by a Telegram group dedicated to the Pixel 6 series.

The locked refresh rate apparently occurs when you turn on Telegram's "raise to speak" feature, which allows you to send voice messages without tapping the mic button. It's a handy capability that saves you the trouble of wracking your thumb, especially if you had to record a long audio clip.

The issue means a number of Pixel 6 devices are losing their smooth display while the app is open. The base model has a refresh rate of up to 90Hz, while the Pro model has a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. However, once Telegram's "raise to speak" capability is enabled, these handy features become meaningless.

Android Central didn't immediately receive a response from Google when asked for a statement. Telegram was not immediately available at the time of this writing.

There's currently no official fix for the problem. That said, you can prevent your Pixel 6 from being locked to the 60Hz refresh rate and enjoy a smooth display while sifting through Telegram.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
