Weird sound when watching videos in a call?

  tofuku 19:02 03 Jun 2019

My boyfriend always complains about my voice turning suddenly distorted whenever we're in a WhatsApp call and I start watching a video on whichever platform, it also happens with gifs. This is getting pretty annoying. I always talk with the extra volume button on, no earphones, does anyone know what is going on?

It would seem that you are not giving your boyfriend all of your attention. The sound could be distorted because of the voice feedback.

I sound like a robot everytime and it always gets fixed by closing the call and calling again, I'm so confused �/p>

Are you, by any chance, using it in Speaker Mode?

@wee eddie yes I am, so I don't have to constantly stick my ear to the phone :c

That's what causes that problem on my Samsung.

I see, thank u. Guess I'll just stick to earbuds...

There may be someone who knows how to sort the problem.

Next time I'm in town I'll ask the shop I bought mine in and report back
