    When I call up the Pixel 3a XL, it says that the phone supports wireless charging. Can anyone tell me how this works? I have a wireless charging pad but when I try to use it my phone only gets hot.

    @Walter Finnin I moved this to the Pixel 3A channel; it doesn't explicitly say it, but that covers the 3a XL as well. The 3a XL has more in common with the 3a than with either the Pixel 3 or 3 XL.

    The 3a line offers 95% of the experience of the 3 line but at ~50% of the price. To get there, compromises were made - and that includes the omission of wireless charging, like @ocnbrze mentioned. I'd avoid placing your 3a XL on a wireless charging pad. It won't charge the phone and may just make it hot, which is not great for the phone's battery.

    May I ask where you saw that the 3a XL supports wireless charging?

    I'm sorry it's been so long since I made the original post, I've had one computer disaster after another!
    I will locate the source and get back to you.
