  1. You are missing the last option, warranty exchange. The only thing working for me. It looks it’s an usual issue after looking around.

    Methid 1 should be make sure your speakers arnt blocked

  3. The issue for many Pixel owners – esp pre-Pixel 4 owners – is that ever since the Android 11 update, the Call Volume is arbitrarily being muted (or, sometimes, almost muted). I am one of those Pixel owners (3a XL) for whom this is an ongoing, infuriating occurrence.

    You can reset the Call Volume to your liking without a problem, but it will again be set to off (muted) at seemingly arbitrary times. I believe that’s the real issue here (Why is this happening? and, more importantly, How do I fix it – permanently?) The “answer” as presented here is full of good information, but it does not address the core issues, ie, WHY is Call Volume being arbitrarily changed, and HOW DO I FIX IT??

    Surely SIMEONE at Google can address this, given that it’s been going on for months now.
