"I've been taking studio-like photos of everything!" — One of the canned lines from the paid ads.

  • The state of Texas is suing Google over a slate of Google Pixel 4 ads from 2019 and 2020.
  • The suit alleges the ads forced radio DJs to blatantly lie about using the Pixel 4 — which none had ever used.
  • If found guilty, Google could face fines in excess of $24 million.

The Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL were rough ones for the company. Not only did they get lukewarm receptions from critics and consumers, but even Google itself was disappointed with the phones. Several Pixel developers left after the phones failed to win anyone over.
