    Maybe it's time to send it in for a replacement!
    Well mine is a brand new Sony XZ Premium (Nougat) and its doing it too. Simple fix is reboot every time I use an app. Very annoying!

    I haven't been able to find an answer to this anywhere on the net, and I'm curious if its only happening to me.

    From time to time my phone will switch, on its own, to playing everything thru the ear speaker. It hasn't done it mid use but once in a while I will go to watch a video and notice the sound is really silent. I crank the volume up and it only gets marginally louder. I'lI then notice that the sound is playing thru the ear speaker that you would listen to while making a call on the head set.

    Its not just for videos either. The phone will play my notifications and all thru the ear speaker.

    I'm not expecting a fix right off the bat, I'm just curious if anyone else is having a similar problem.
    download the app called voicethru from google try to play music through the audio player option choose which speaker it needs to play from if it doesnt play then it needs to be replaced

    I have had this problem three times now on my Galaxy S9 and am looking for the source so I can turn it on at will I found the ability to listen to my music through the ear speaker when I didn't have ear buds very convenient. when it happened on my phone the screen would go black and all audio would be routed to my ear speaker like if you're on a call on speaker phone and bring the phone to your ear.

    that's just how WhatsApp operates try making sure you aren't covering the light sensors at the top of your phone that will route audio through the ear speaker

    This started happening to me and the fix was uninstalling a recent app that I gave and audio permissions . I bet I could have fixed it by adjusting my permissions but any uninstalling recent apps or recently updated apps
    - goodluck

    Had the same issue. Just go to settings and force stop the app you recently used for calling like Messenger, Whatsapp, etc.

    Wow, a 4-year-old thread that has current responses! I ran across this when Googling a similar problem. My issue is that both my last phone (LG G7) and current phone (LG V40) will randomly take a voice call off of Bluetooth. The phone still shows Bluetooth active in the phone app, yet the call audio is going through the earpiece. I end up having to toggle the Bluetooth button off and back on (not turning Bluetooth completely off, just hitting the button to make the phone think it's switching the call audio off of Bluetooth and then back on), and that fixes it. But it has happened several times.

    Also, and this is just on the V40, voicemails played back through the Visual Voicemail app won't play through my Bluetooth headset or my in-car Bluetooth. With the headset, I fix the problem by turning the headset off and back on. Harder to do that in the car on the freeway...

    What if i have a home remedy for this which i just noticed and it works all the time.

    just call someone and turn on loudapeaker mode and hang up before the call connects..
    and boom.. the speaker is now working. Do this everytime your audio will be diverted to the ear speaker.
