Yesterday, the speaker phone on my Pixel 4 stopped working. At first i thought it was an issue with the phone app or software but then i tested normal apps like tidal and play music. No sound was coming from the bottom of my phone. Anyone else have this issue?

Can you reboot into safe mode to see if the speaker works there

Same thing happened to me. Sound can be garbled too. 

I did a factory reset and still have problems.

Same issue with Pixel 4. Bottom speaker stopped working. This is affecting:

a) calls with regular audio setting
b) calls with speaker function on
c) videocalls on Whatsapp and Facebook messenger app 
d) alarms 
e) message notifications 

I've tried safe mode, cache cleaning and factory settings reset. Nothing has worked. Looks like it's a hardware issue.

Google's solution: you pay full price for a new device that is defective or a refurbished device. Is this really Google's philosophy?

Same issue here. I went through 4 supervisors. Google doesn't care, if you have a phone more than 15 days old. You get a refurbished phone ( aka, someone else's issue phone. It really sucks. I can confirm factory reset results in the same. I would all monitor the issue, might be the pioneers of a class action lawsuit. 

I can tell you one thing I learned, buy from a store like Amazon or Target, or Walmart. A company that knows the value of a customer. 

If there is issues with the next phone I'll switch to another hardware manufacturer. Done with company that doesn't care.

Same issue here. Tried support chat and was "guaranteed" that the issue would be fixed with a factory reset. It wasn't.

Similar issue on my Pixel 4, my bottom speaker sounds blown. The issue started during a voice call.  I'm using this phone no differently than my Pixel 2, which never had this issue over two years of ownership.

My bottom speaker started making a crackling sound intermittently yesterday and now has completely stopped working. Did a factory reset but still have the issue. I'll contact Google although by the previews comments I don't have high hopes. Perfect phone till yesterday..(sigh)
