I have the Pixel 4XL and the mic on my bluetooth headphones will not pick up sound outside of phone calls. Phone calls work as expected but if I try to use the assistant the phone defaults to it's onboard mic (it will not use the headphone mic). My headset and it's mic worked just fine with my Pixel 2. I'm running into the same issue with the bluetooth connection in my car. Anyone run into this and find a solution?

I just got off the phone with support for a while and it looks like this is a bug.  

They said they would get back if they find a resolve or update.

I am having the same issue. I also upgraded from the Pixel 2. I still had mine and tested if it worked still on my old Pixel 2 and it does. The problem for me is only on the Pixel 4 XL. I noticed that it never switches over from the built in mic to the Bluetooth one, so the input is stuck on the phones mic even if sound plays out through the headset. 

Another odd thing probably related to this, all sound plays through the headset other than the Google Assistant on the Pixel 4 XL. This also works correctly on the Pixel 2.

To sum it up, on the Pixel 4 XL:
- Bluetooth microphones don't seem to work.
- Google Assistant seems to be silent over Bluetooth (but can be activated).

Also have the same issue. Between this and the popping sounds in 3rd party apps I am just about done with my pixel experiment

I am also having the same problem. I can't use it in my car or with any headsets. I certainly hope they fix this soon

I've done all the options shown in this thread:
  1. reset wifi... settings
  2. ensured all updates were applied
  3. went to google > account settings > .... and turned on bluetooth toggle
  4. restarted phone after each item tried as well
NOTHING has fixed this issue. Is it August yet? I'm going back to Samsung. I've returned two different headsets thinking it was their mic, when clearly I've been wrong. I'd searched the net for settings of those devices that needing fixing, and then tonight realized I never looked to see if the Pixel 4XL I have is the issue. Wish I'd looked up that search sooner. 

Just ridiculous. Even with a ticket submitted to help others hopefully gain traction on a solution...I will not get another google phone. A Bluetooth headset is a daily use for me and not working is not acceptable.
