Google To Fix Pixel 2’s Buzzing Noise Issue

Ever since the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were launched back in October, the two Android flagship phones have been marred with some issue or the other. While the Pixel 2 XL has faced a lot of flak for its shoddy display and extremely apparent colour shifting, the Pixel 2 has also had some minor issues that have been reported extensively online. One of them is the buzzing noise a user can hear when they put the phone to their ear during a call. Google has announced that an upcoming software update will fix this issue.

Hey all,

We’re rolling out a software update in the coming weeks which eliminates a faint buzzing sound on some Pixel 2 devices when the phone is placed to your ear during a phone call.


It is worth noting that the buzzing noise is different from the “clicking” noise that some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users have experienced in the past. While an update fixed that issue, people found a way around that issue by switching off NFC.

Considering Google’s prowess in the software part of technology, it is surprising that most of the problems with the two Pixel 2 phones have been software related. On the flip side, it is a good sign that Google is taking note of every little issue reported by users and trying to actively fix them.

What's your reaction?
