Problems With The Google Pixel 2 Mic: Here's How To Fix

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have had their share of launch problems, but one of the most baffling revolves around the pair's microphone. However, it seems quite freaky that a problem in a premium flagship such as the Pixel 2 needs to be resolved by actions such as blowing in the microphone. Some have found that disabling this feature prevents the issue, others say that even just toggling it off and then on is a temporary solution.

Google cemented their presence in the smartphone market when they released the Google Pixel a few years ago. Most of the Pixel 2 devices users have reported random Android Auto crashes. The user further added this does not happen all the time, but he has noticed this issue after the purchasing the device. In some posts, Pixel 2 XL users claim that the issue was seen when powering on the handset. They are so developed now that we literally are carrying around a huge part of our lives every day. Multiple other users also confirmed the solution works.

Some Pixel 2 owners have reported unresponsive microphones during calls or while using voice assistant.

A number of users have reported that blowing into the bottom speaker or USB port seems to solve the microphone issue. This could still be a hardware related issue that's directly tied to Android Oreo. Once the mic was working, he was able to deactivate it by blowing into the speaker. Luckily for users affected by the long list of Pixel 2 or 2 XL issues, Google has extended its warranty on both devices for free, but it does beg the question as to just how much this warranty will be called into effect in the length of one contract. This doesn't happen all the time. Curiously, he also notes that blowing into the speaker while the microphone is working properly causes it to stop working once more.
