    Default Audio during video Hangout randomly switches from rear speaker to handset speaker

    During a video hangout, the audio randomly switches from "speakerphone" mode to handset mode. The video itself is fine. The other person's audio will get really quiet because it's coming from the handset speaker, and they will complain that they can't hear me anymore.

    After this happens, I can manually hit the speaker button and choose the option to use the Speaker rather than Handset mode, and the problem fixes itself. However, the fix usually lasts less than a couple minutes. Within 1-3 minutes it will change back to handset mode. This happens even if the phone is sitting down on the table during the hangout and I'm not interacting with it and there's no chance for me to inadvertently press a button or cover up the proximity sensor.

    I'm using an EVO LTE with a stock ROM w/ root if matters. I'm curious if anyone else has experienced this.

    This happens on my mom's Galaxy S3 as well but never happened to me on Verizon Gnex or N5.

    I'm guessing you never found a workaround either?
