    Default Moto X: Speakerphone volume low after update?

    As usual, I preface by saying I'm not sure if this a problem with the phone (hardware/software) or user ignorance.

    It seems to me that since the kitkat update, my speaker phone volume is very low - not any louder than non-speakerphone. Last night I was trying to use the speakerphone, and with the volume at full, I still had to hold it to my ear to hear. It was a little too loud for holding it to my ear, kind of like it was simply set to loudest volume for non-speakerphone use. Definitely not loud enough to function as a speakerphone though.

    I wonder if something happened during the update, either a defect in the software, or maybe it re-set something that I'm not aware of and now need to re-configure.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Perhaps I'm not the best person to respond to this, because it seems I may have a defective phone (we'll see)...but since the update, my speaker is not as loud and it has a hollow sound to it. Plus, it's very "tin-ny" and not easy to listen to.

    My Photon was so much better. Can't believe I'm even saying that, but it's true...

    Sounds like a defect. I'd return.

    I don't think mine is defective since - as I recall - the speaker phone worked fine before the update.

    I think this might be a sporadic problem - it didn't work so well an hour ago in the car, but just now, it worked fine in my office. I'll keep an eye on it. Now I'm thinking it might just not be loud enough to use in my car, although, again, I really thought it worked fine in the car and everywhere else before the update.

    Stand by for further updates! 8-)

    In settings Click on Sounds you can change how the speaker sounds.

    My Moto G has had the same volume issue since the update. My volume for almost everything else can be almost painfully loud, but the speakerphone volume is dramatically lower than it should be.

    My Moto G seems to have the same problem. However, powering off and restarting it seems to solve the problem.... (for right now).

    Hey my cousin called me this morning screaming about that issue. She updated her Moto G (Koodo) last night and she said that she can barely even hear when it's on speakerphone anymore... She rebooted, but no change... All volume levels are raised to max...

    I have another friend who upgraded hers to 4.4.2 with no issues.

    Any suggestions? Should I do a factory reset? Clear the settings data/cache partition?

    I wonder what the problem is...

    Hi. So I have exactly same problem with my moto g after update. Good thing is it's not a hardware' s fault. My volume levels are max but sometimew when calling using either phone speaker or loudspeaker It's very quiet. What I have to do is press volume down and then up and it works. Its annoying and will hopefully be fixed soon. But u don't need to reboot of do a factory reset. Hope it helps.

    One more thing. My girlfriend has the same phone updated on the same day but she hasn't got any problems. Don't understand why some people have? Also when u adjust the volume up or down and it beeps every time, then volume of the call would be as it should be. When it doesn't beep after adjusting then the problem will appear. This happens to me. Anyone noticed something similar?

    I have had this same problem on the Moto G since the kitkat update. Motorola claims that I am the only one who has reported this problem. Has anyone else reported this to Motorola support?

    I had to the same problem. I believe its caused by Audio effects, I turned it off and volume is working for me.

    settings>sound> audio effects > off

    Moto G, Same issue.
    Restart fixes it, but it's a little boring having to do a daily restart.
