Check the ear speaker alignment

The first thing you should do is to check that your phone’s ear speaker aligns with your ear when you make a call. The ear speaker is located at the top of the phone, next to the front camera. If you hold the phone too high or too low, you may not hear the sound properly. Try to adjust the position of the phone until you find the best spot for your ear.

Check the volume settings

The next thing you should do is to check the volume settings of your phone. You can do this by pressing the volume buttons on the right side of the phone. You can also swipe down from the top of the screen and tap the sound icon to access the sound settings. Make sure that the volume level is high enough for you to hear the sound clearly. You can also adjust the media volume, alarm volume, and ring volume from the same menu.

Check the mobile data connection

Another possible cause of the low ear speaker problem is a weak or unstable mobile data connection. This can affect the quality of the voice calls, especially if you are using a VoIP service like WhatsApp, Skype, or Google Duo. To check the strength of your mobile data connection, look at the mobile signal icon at the top of the screen. A filled triangle means that you have a strong signal. If you don’t have a strong connection, try to find an area with a better signal. You can also switch to a different network mode, such as 4G, 3G, or 2G, from the network settings.

Turn off Bluetooth

Sometimes, Bluetooth devices can interfere with the sound quality of the phone. If you have a Bluetooth device connected to your phone, such as a headset, speaker, or car stereo, try to turn it off or disconnect it. You can do this by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping the Bluetooth icon. You can also go to the Bluetooth settings and unpair the device from your phone.

Turn Wi-Fi on or off

Another thing you can try is to turn Wi-Fi on or off. Some users have reported that turning Wi-Fi off improves the sound quality of the calls, while others have said that turning Wi-Fi on helps. You can experiment with both options and see what works best for you. You can turn Wi-Fi on or off by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping the Wi-Fi icon. You can also go to the Wi-Fi settings and choose a different network or forget a network.

Restart your phone

If none of the above solutions work, you can try to restart your phone. This can help to clear any temporary glitches or bugs that may be affecting the sound quality. To restart your phone, press and hold the power button on the right side of the phone. Then, tap Restart on the screen. You can also press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds to force restart your phone.

Contact Pixel support

If the problem persists after trying all the above steps, you may have a hardware issue with your ear speaker. In that case, you should contact Pixel support and ask for a repair or replacement. You can contact Pixel support by going to the Settings app, tapping Tips & Support, and choosing Phone or Chat. You can also visit the Pixel Phone Help website or the [Pixel Phone Community] forum for more assistance.
