Google Pixel 2 buzzing bug-fix is finally in the works

Google will release an update for the recently-released Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL “in the coming weeks” to address an issue that results in an irritating buzzing sound hindering communication during telephone calls.

Big G initially thought the problem was hardware-related, but after noticing that customers who received a replacement unit were still experiencing the bug, it dug a little deeper and found that it has something to do with the handset’s software.

“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 call,” revealed a Community Manager on Google’s Community Forum.

This news comes less than a month after the firm released a similar update for the Pixel 2 – and Pixel 2 XL – to rectify a different bug, which caused the handset to emit a faint clicking sound whenever Near Field Communication was turned on.

Pixel 2 is proving to be troublesome for Google

The Pixel 2 is proving to be particularly troublesome for Google, having launched with rave reviews in October, only to develop a number of frustrating issues –including poor audio quality and an unresponsive display – a couple of weeks later.
