Now, some of the Google Pixel 2 users are reporting Microphone Issue on the phone. 

Google has released two new smartphones, Google Pixel 2 which is a smaller one and the Google Pixel 2 XL which is the bigger one. There have been reports of plenty of bugs on both the phones and many users have shared their issues on various forum sites. Google is continuously working to fix the bugs and other issues on the phone and the new ones are already on the way.

While making calls, the Microphone of Google Pixel 2 phone stops working. The same issue has been posted by hundreds of users of the phone and they have complained to Google as well. As per the complaints of the users on Google Product Forums, the original builtin microphone doesn’t work properly while making video calls or using Google Assistant service. It doesn’t respond to any of Google Assistant’s commands.

On respond to the same microphone issue, the giant has responded with the “internal software malfunction” on the device’ software.



From the official Google Product Forum, one user has posted that, “No microphone detection for me of any kind. First, notice through live periscope streams past about 2 minutes. Then Google Assistant won’t work. Now realize video recordings have no sound and at all.” The same issue has been posted by many users from various locations. So this is not an issue which can be ignored, instead they should think about the fix for this issue as soon as possible.

You just need to blow some air to the speaker and you will get back your microphone on the device. The same fix has fixed many users’ issue related to Microphone not working on the Pixel 2 smartphone. You too can give this fix a proper try and you should be fine with it.



Well, this is not an official fix for this issue. It seems that, Google has not designed their new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones properly.
