Top 6 Fixes for Echoes During Voice Phone Calls on Android

Do you keep hearing your voice when you use Android to make phone calls? Unfortunately, this problem is more common than you might think, and it can be caused by things like network problems or apps that don't work well together. In this post, we'll talk about some troubleshooting tips for getting rid of echoes on Android voice calls. So, let's get started.

Before We Being

Before you spend time on more advanced ways to fix a problem, here are some simple things you can try.

First, take off your phone's protective case or anything else that's on the outside. If the patient doesn't fit right, it could get in the way of your phone's speaker and microphone, which could cause an echo when you talk.

If you are using wired or wireless headphones, take them off and see if the echoes still happen. If you don't, the problem is likely coming from your headphones.

Next, try putting your phone into aeroplane mode. This will help fix any minor network problems that might have been making phone calls echo.

If the problem is still there after you've tried the basic fixes, here are some more advanced things you can try to fix echoes on Android voice calls.

1. Ask the Other Person to Disable the Speakerphone

When the microphone records the sound coming from the speaker, it can cause an echo. This is one of the most common reasons Android phones echo during phone calls.

You can ask the other person to turn down the volume or turn off the speaker to see if that solves the problem.

2. Disable Call Recording

You might also hear an echo if your phone is set to record calls. Several people on the XDA forum said that when call recording was turned on for their phones, they had similar problems. You can try turning this feature off to see if that helps.

If your phone can record calls by default, you can turn off the feature by doing the steps below.

1. Open your Android Phone app. Tap the kebab menu (the three dots) in the upper right corner, then tap Settings.

2. Tap Record calls and turn off the switch for Auto record calls.

If you're using a separate app to record calls, you'll have to turn off the recording from that app.

3. Turn Off Wi-Fi Calling

Wi-Fi calling is an excellent feature on your Android phone that lets you make voice calls over your Wi-Fi network instead of your cellular network. But this feature can sometimes get in the way of phone calls and cause trouble. You can see if that helps by turning off Wi-Fi calling on your phone. Several Reddit users who were having echoes on their Samsung Galaxy phones say that this fix worked for them.

1. Open the Settings app and tap Connections.

2. Turn off Wi-Fi Calling by toggling the switch next to it.

4. Figure out why your VoIP calls have echos

Your internet connection may be broken if you hear echoes on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls. You can try switching to a different network connection to see if that helps.

You can also use other apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, or Skype to see if the problem happens with all of them. If the problem only occurs in one app, you should be able to fix it by clearing its cache or giving it the latest version.

5. Reset Network Settings

You may need to reset your phone's network settings if none of these work. This will put all the network settings back to their default values and fix any problems caused by settings that were set up incorrectly.

1. Open your phone's Settings app and scroll until you see General management.

2. Tap Reset, and then on the next screen, choose Reset network settings.

3. Tap the button that says "Reset settings," and then follow the steps on the screen to start the process of restoring.

6. Try Safe Mode

When you put your Android phone into Safe Mode, it will only use the apps and services that came with it. This should help you figure out if a recently installed app on your Android phone is the cause of echoes during phone calls.

To start your phone in Safe Mode, press the power button to open the power menu. To enter Safe Mode, hold the Restart button for a long time and tap the green checkmark.

Make a call after your phone goes into Safe Mode to see if you still hear echoes. If you don't, it shows a problem with one of your installed apps. You can fix the problem by removing any apps that were just added or aren't being used.
