We adore joking that in 2021 no one makes calls on their smartphone. And even if this is true, obviously we need to be able to make and receive calls from those gadgets. Our devices become much less reliable and much harder when this feature is jeopardized. That’s why it’s that a new bug is preventing Android devices for phone calls.

There is now an issue with the Google app which can disable certain Android devices placing and receiving phone calls, as reported by Bleeping Computer. According to a Google community manager that did not identify which Google Search app version contains a fault, the bug affects “the most recent update to the Android Google Search app.”

Consider that it’s a reminder that you always need to be on the watch for uncovered flaws and instabilities while upgrading your program to the current version. Now here’s how this one can be fixed.

How to fix your Android phone call issue

Fortunately, there’s a cure and that’s very simple: Google has released an update to its own app to remedy the call flaw. All you need to do is to install the update to verify that you may do it and accept calls. (If you enable automatic updates, you probably did that already.) Follow the following steps to see if your application is fully up-to-date:

  1. Search the Google app and open the Play Store.
  2. Tap the Update button when you see it. You’re updated fully when the button says Open.

Which Android phones are affected by this bug?

That again, if you own a smartphone built by anyone else than LG, you might not have to fret much about this problem. While Google didn’t disclose what bug affected Android devices (frustrating, sure), the concerns received from users mostly relate to people with LG phones such as LG G7, LG V40 ThinQ and LG Q70. Some people have even deleted the Google app in order to address their problems.

Until Google publishes an official cellphones list, the best information we can work with is anecdotal evidence.. Whichever phone you use, you should update your Google app to make sure you get all your calls.
