Google is releasing a fix in the coming weeks to remove a faint buzzing sound that appears during phone calls on some Pixel 2 devices. A community manager posted a short message on the Pixel User Community forum confirming the fix, stating, “We’re rolling out a software update in the coming weeks which eliminates a faint buzzing sound on some Pixel 2 devices when the phone is placed to your ear during a phone call.”

Some users received replacement handsets, but said the problem remained. Others described the noise as a hissing sound. The fix comes shortly after the company issued a software update to fix the faint NFC-related clicking sounds some users experienced last month.

Though the Pixel 2 launched with rave reviews, the first month of rollout has been troublesome for Google, with devices suffering from a variety of issues including poor sound recording quality, unresponsive spots on the XL’s touchscreen, and some display issues.
