What is latest on Pixel 3 problem - can't be heard on Speakerphone?? 2 Recommended Answers 190 Replies 506 Upvotes

Bought *pixel 3* two months ago and when using speakerphone at least half time the other end can't hear me.  They pick up and say hello about 4 times, and only if I turn off speakerphone can they hear me.  Or I break up. I know this was a big issue in the fall.  Can someone advise whether Google ever recognized this problem and if any solution is promised.  Or do I arrange for an RMA?  Thanks!

I had an RMA, got a refurbished pixel 3, same issue.  This phone does it too, but doesn't do the other things I had wrong with my phone (Google Lens freakouts, random flashing, dropped calls constantly).  Its better, but still disappointing for an $800 phone.

Im on my third Pixel 3 RMA hardware exchange and I still have problems with speakerphone, dropped calls.
Speakerphone Issue: when I call/recieve with the speakerphone the recipient can't hear me for about 8-12 seconds.
Dropped calls: Often a call will get dropped into a conversation

The Camera and Hotspot work great.

Hi Michael. Please contact Google Support if factory resetting the 'phone hasn't solved the issue.

Penelope,

 Since my post 4 days ago, My Pixel 3 has been updating. I had 3 updates since. Yesterday and today, I haven't expierienced my previously posted issues (fingers crossed). I am going to test for a week and hopefully the updates or hardware changes have been fixed.

Thank you for reaching out to me about my issues.

To Michael Connors, how do you know if your Pixel 3 is updating?  I have not seen any sign of updating of my Pixel 3.  On the iPhone, an update is announced on the top screen.  I saw no notice.  Your guidance would be helpful.  Thanks!

My pixel 3 just updated the phone app this morning.

To check if yours is updating that app goto "Play Store" ... Click on the hamburger (3 horizontal lines) on the top left side then select "My Apps & Games" 

You should find the list of recently updated app there. Check for "phone" app

Mine isn't specific to speaker phone, everytime I have a call, it breaks up constantly either on speaker phone or or off. I know its not my service provider because we have had no issues when I had my previous phone. My phone is up to date. Time to just try and sell it?

I am having the same issue on speakerphone. People cannot hear me when I am using speakerphone. My wife has the pixel and does not have these issues.

I recently RMAed my Pixel 3 and still have the issues on my new one. I use speakerphone almost exclusively and this is my work phone. All updates are complete and up to date.

Same issue. I have about a month and a half old pixel 3. Other person is not able to hear on speakerphone. This looks a software issue as other apps like Messenger/Whatsapp calls work fine.

Hi Vatsal. Please leave your observations as feedback (Settings > About Phone) or from within the phone app. Doing this will keep issues to the forefront and should the development team receive a significant number of similar reports, perhaps there will be a fix in a future update if the problem does lie with the software.
 
Thank you.

Like other people on this thread, I am on my third Pixel 3 right now with the same speakerphone issue.  They keep trying to give me a new device and don't really seem to want to spend the time to get to the bottom of it.  We will see happens when they reply back.
