    Randomly, my Pixel 2 makes a guitar strum like sound. It doesn't appear to be tied to any notifications and sounds even when notifications are not coming in. I've even turned notifications off and it still sounds. I tried looking at the notification log, but nothing really there. It's a random sound and when I look at the default notification sounds, none of the ones on the list match the sound I'm hearing. Anyone else have this issue?

    Welcome to Android Central! Does it go away if you turn off NFC?

    Turned off NFC this morning. So far it hasn't made the noise but going to wait a full 24 hours before I consider it resolved.

    NFC can cause random-seeming sounds like this if something else with an NFC chip (like a credit card or a work ID in a wallet-style phone case) is up against the phone. Is that the case?

    It might be. My wife has a wallet case that hold CC and debit cards. So we've turned NFC to see if that solves it. Second test we'll do is turn NFC back on but take the phone out of that case. Will post back here once I learn more.

    Mine is doing the same thing.. I wondered if it was an app that I downloaded.. it still does it even after I deleted them. It's a weird guitar strum sound and does it randomly though my ear speaker. It's low like only really audible with your ear to the phone, but you can faintly hear it with your ear farther away. It does it randomly and seems more late at night.
