Some Nexus 6 owners are experiencing call audio issues after Android 7.1.1 update


Days after Android 7.1.1 finally hit the aging Nexus 6, users are reporting audio quality problems during speakerphone calls after the update. A growing number of frustrated owners of Motorola's massive Android phone are now taking to Google's product forums to report the issue.

According to numerous almost identical reports, the 7.1.1 update is causing a lot of issues while calling on speakerphone, in that the person on the other end is unable to properly hear the device's owner. The problems described in these reports span overbearing echoing, “squealing” voices, high-pitched noises, and others similar annoyances. Some users are reporting that muting the microphone fixes the issue but that absolutely defeats the purpose.

A number of Nexus 6 owners are also reporting that flashing back to Android 7.0 has fixed the issue for them. Google has officially acknowledged the issue and is working on patching it in the near future.

If you own a Nexus 6, you might want to hold off updating to the latest version of Android for the time being.

Where's the quality and testing department? Each generation of Nexus devices seems to be suffering from some sort of issue after receiving an update. When my Nexus 5x got 7.0, it was not as reliable as it was as when it was on Marshmallow.
