Google Pixel 2 now has a microphone issue

Whilst the new software update is largely focused on the Pixel 2 XL, it does include a fix for the annoying "clicking noise" found in the smaller sized Pixel 2.

Google lists many features sported by its larger Pixel 2 XL, from the slimmer bezels to the OLED display to the oleophobic "oil" coating, which is meant to stop fingerprints and smudges appearing on the device. While it is uncertain at the moment what exactly is causing the problem, it would be wise to contact Google if you are experiencing this issue with your handset. Once again we don't know why this method works but Pixel 2, S8 and Note 8 users have claimed that this simple trick is fixing the mic problem. This was a breath of fresh air in a realm of Android complications, and Google followed this success with the Pixel 2.

The issue was first brought to light by a Pixel 2 XL user Cynthia O in the Pixel User Community forums.

Do you think that Pixel 2 XL's OLED panel by LG is of dismal quality?

Some Pixel 2 owners have reported unresponsive microphones during calls or while using voice assistant. The latest one that has surfaced is related to the bigger Pixel 2 XL model.

However, in a recent post, a user shared that they were able to resolve the problem by blowing into the bottom speaker. Multiple other users also confirmed the solution works. Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge. One of the users wrote on the forum, "I'm not sure why, but the Pixel 2 XL screen flashes when unlocking (fingerprint and lock button), when the screen wakes up because of notifications, when the screen dims and the phone locks, and when manually locking". This doesn't happen all the time. "Blowing into the speaker when the microphone is working causes it to fail", Zeird wrote.
