Microphone Defect Affecting Pixel Phones
When the Pixel microphone fails, people can’t use the phones for their most basic purpose—phone calls. Pixel users have also been unable to dictate texts, record audio, search the web with voice command, and use the advertised Google Assistant feature. Many owners of the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL phones have lodged complaints about these defects on Google Forums, social networks, and other websites.
In March 2017, Google reported that the microphone problems are caused by “a hairline crack in the solder connection on the audio codec” and a “faulty microphone.”
