feedback on galaxy S7 when using DUO app

  amonra 20:12 02 Oct 2019

When I use my samsung S7 phone on DUO to video-call my family, they complain of occasional "squeaking" which is annoying to say the least. If I swop over to my Galaxy tablet, no problems, no funny noises, no feedback. It's obviously audio feedback, but why only on one app ? and why only on the S7 ? It doesn't appear to be constant, only intermittently on certain frequencies by the sound of it. I've tried whistling to provoke the noise but no success. Any ideas please ???

I hate to ask you this, but it has to be done.

Are you using the touch Screen or a Mouse?

Many apologies, I just couldn't resist it.

wee edie, that's a rather cheesie response, a left handed comment and while I'm on a scroll................still trapped with the problem.

I have an S7 Edge. I also have a roughly similar problem, but its when using the Speaker Phone facility.

The respondent at the other end, gets a very bad reception

wee eddie, I think it must be a common problem with the S7 while on loudspeaker, it does not happen on normal telephone calls, only on DUO. I have an old S7 with a cracked screen which I intend to use to d/load all my details to see if it happens on that one. will keep you posted.
