Google Pixel smartphones are great devices, but there are a few ongoing software-related issues that are very annoying. After months of complaints by users, it looks like Google has finally fixed audio issues with the phones. Audio distortion occurred when sound is played at louder levels and while it has been suggested that it could be a hardware issue, luckily the issue can be fixed via new software update.
Users are now reporting that the problem has been fixed with the latest February security patch. The update is currently being pushed out so if you are affected by the issue, check your notifications.
