Nexus phones are supposed to serve Android just the way Google cooked it. As a result, they have the least number of complications and are expected to work absolutely smoothly without much of a hiccup. However, in the last few days, it has been reported that several Nexus users are actually suffering from issues with syncing on their devices to Google services. As a result, push services like Gmail and Inbox have been affected and people are reporting that they have been receiving their E-Mails delayed by hours.
We can vouch for the fact, as it has been almost 15 days now that the issue has plagued our Nexus 6P, where Push Mails seriously do not seem to work. If you wish to try you can perhaps take a chance and do one of following which could resolve the issue:
- If you are experiencing the issue on a phone other than the latest Nexus devices, try and flash the factory image of previous Android version.
- Try and delete the Google account and readd it.
- Restart your phone and try again.
- Wipe the cache on your app that is not syncing and try again.
We did all of the above, but to little effect as the services did not sync still. However, there are several threads on Android Forums across the web, complaining of the same and several Google employees have answered there, clearly outlining that they are aware of the issue and, therefore we hope this issue will be resolved really soon.
