Google will soon roll out a software fix for the clicking and high-frequency sounds that are coming from some users’ Pixel 2 handsets.
A community manager for Google’s Pixel User Community forum wrote that the company is preparing to roll out an update that should get rid of the noises in the coming weeks, adding: “The clicking noise being reported does not affect the performance of your device but if you find it bothersome you can temporarily turn off NFC in Settings > Connected devices > NFC.”
Reports of the issue began last week, with users stating that whenever they put their unlocked device to their ear (for calling or otherwise) they heard clicking and buzzing sounds.
The Pixel 2’s issue has been somewhat overshadowed by the screen burn-in issue that’s affecting the Pixel 2 XL, which Google also plans to address with software updates. To ease consumer worries about both issues, the company is also now offering a two-year warranty on both handsets worldwide.
