I'm on the January update. I'm using 3 button navigation. In the last day, the buttons have stopped working multiple times. When I reboot my phone then the buttons work again.

I am rooted and using Magisk add ons by @Typhus with ROM control.

Anyone else seeing this?
I'm still on December and the 3 button navigation is broken as you describe it. Since you're seeing it in January I'm not in such a big hurry to update now. I am so pissed off at Google!

I think it's not magisk related
And I'm also experiencing this on gestures
Swiping up sometimes just does nothing and is really annoying

Edit: stock on Jan update

Iam on standard January update phone no root i have no working navigaton buttons few times per week its normal issue on pixel 6 pro for now just wait for update
That's what they said in December! How long will we wait until they get things working?

Even though I had no confidence that it would be resolved in the January release I tried unsuccessfully to side load the Jan OTA. The system update failed to update and for some reason I could never get adb sideload to work so I used the Android Flash Tool to install January, which of course wiped my phone. After all these years I have procedures in place that allow me to recover when that happens, which require me to root. (I miss my reliable OnePlus 7 pro.)

I've been under the impression from others who used the Official Google Android Flash Tool that there is an option to prevent wiping you can select. I haven't used the site myself, I do it using the script in the full factory image using the latest Platform Tools each month, editing the script first to eliminate the "-w " so the phone isn't wiped.

I never use OTAs while rooted, just flash the full factory image instead.

I'll try that way next time I can't update.

My 6 will do that. They just stop responding. Myself I don't need to reboot though. Either I can wait for a few seconds and they'll start working again, or at most lock then unlock the phone.

I have a OP8 with a custom a11 ROM on it that 3 button navigation has worked flawlessly on. I upgraded it to 12 over the weekend and have had the buttons lock up a couple of times since. So it would appear to be a a12 thing, and not just a a12 on Pixel issue.
