A lot of new Android devices and tablets are set to be launched this month, including the Google Pixel 2, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Apple iPhone 7, but it turns out the same old problem of poor audio streaming still remains.
While the new Pixel 2 and S7 will be launching with the most robust audio codecs and best audio quality ever available on the market, it’s a little surprising to see a number of manufacturers dropping the audio codec that’s the industry standard for most audio on smartphones.
The problem is that not all audio codec codecs are created equal, and not all devices have the same audio experience.
While some apps like Spotify and Spotify Premium have improved audio quality with more advanced codecs, some devices, like the Pixel 2 have a worse audio experience than the one that comes with the operating system.
In order to make sure you’re getting the best audio experience, you need to install a new audio codec on your phone.
That codec, of course, is the one used in the Pixel phones, and while it’s technically a codec that supports multiple audio formats, it only supports a handful of them.
To make sure the audio quality of your phone is at the very best it can be, you’ll need to make your phone run the newest audio codec, the Qualcomm AAC Audio Codec.
As an audio codec has evolved over the years, the codecs that are currently in use have changed as well.
In the early days of the audio industry, there was only one audio codec: MP3.
Nowadays, there are hundreds of different audio codec standards that all support multiple audio codec formats, and the best ones are all pretty darn good.
While the majority of audio codec choices today are based on the same format, there’s still a lot of room for improvement in audio quality, which is why the Android operating system offers a number out of the box.
To use your phone with the best possible audio quality and compatibility, you’re going to need to follow the instructions below.
For more detailed information about how to use a particular audio codec and how to install it, you can visit the Qualcomm Audio Codec website.
To download the Qualcomm audio codec for your phone, head over to the Qualcomm website, then scroll down to the “Downloading” section.
The download will begin and will take about five minutes.
Once the download has completed, you should see an alert in your notification tray.
This indicates that the codec has been installed.
When you’ve completed the install process, you will see a notification in the notification tray once more, indicating that the audio audio codec is ready to be installed.
Once you’ve installed the audio, head to Settings > Audio & audio.
From here, you may find the audio icon in the top right corner of your notification panel, or you can also open your phone’s audio settings and tap on the audio indicator in the lower right corner.
The easiest way to test if the audio is working is to open your device’s settings, tap on Audio & video, and select the “Audio” tab.
You’ll then see the audio information displayed at the bottom of the screen.
If the audio signal doesn’t appear to be working, there might be a few issues with your device that are causing it to not work.
If you see any of the following errors, it means your device has some hardware issues that are not being fixed.
If your audio is still not working after the above steps, you might want to try running the following steps on your Android device to make certain it’s working correctly.
Open your Android app, tap the Settings icon, and then tap on About phone.
Scroll down and tap “About this phone.”
Tap on “More information.”
Tap the “About” button again.
Then tap on “Check for updates.”
If you get an error message that says “Something went wrong while updating to the latest version of Android”, then your phone might not be working properly.
Check the Android version number in the “Updates” section of the “Information” section, and make sure that your device is running the latest Android version.
If your device does not have the latest update, you could also be having an Android update problem.
If that’s not the case, then you might have an issue with the latest updates for your device.
You can check if your device was using the latest software update by going to Settings, tap About phone, then tap Update.
If it says that you are in a “Beta”, “Unstable” or “Test”, you probably have an update problem that needs to be fixed.
Head over to Google’s Google Play store to download the latest audio codec.
If everything is working, you won’t have to worry about your audio quality getting worse as you download the codec.
If you do experience any audio issues after installing the audio software, then try rebooting your device to see if your audio issue has been fixed.
