There’s something to be said for unexpected bugs and behavior in software. Sometimes, it’s so unpredictable you have to marvel at what when wrong. Android users are experiencing a rather odd little bug; they hear a loud beep at the end of phone calls. The beep doesn’t really alert them to anything other than that the call has ended. This bug although experienced exclusively by Android users isn’t exactly an Android bug. It appears to be a bug that Snapchat has added to some Android devices. The fix, according to Reddit user shredditup21 is to turn off Phone access for the Snapchat app.
Fix Loud Beep At The End Of Phone Calls
The fix is pretty simple; you need to disable phone access for Snapchat. There are two ways to do this.
Open the Settings app and go to Apps & notifications>App Permissions. Tap Phone on the App Permissions screen and you will see which apps have access to the Phone app. Disable Snapchat here.
Since there is considerable fragmentation in Android, settings differ from device to device and Android version to Android version. If you don’t see ‘App Permissions’ in the Settings app, there’s a second way you can turn off Phone access for the Snapchat app.
Open the Settings app and go to Apps, or App Manager, or Apps & Notifications. Here, tap ‘Apps’, or ‘App info’. You will see a list of all installed apps. Look for Snapchat in this list and tap it. Tap ‘Permissions’ on the Snapchat app info page, and revoke access to the Phone app.
I Don’t Use Snapchat
This appears to be a Snapchat created issue however, if you don’t use Snapchat or if revoking Phone access to Snapchat hasn’t fixed the problem try revoking Phone access for all apps on your phone. The process is the same as it is for Snapchat though if you see the ‘App Permissions’ setting in your Settings app, it will be a lot easier to revoke access.
Unfortunately, you’re in for a bit of trial and error. You will have to revoke access to apps and check if the problem goes away. There’s no straight forward way to determine which app might be the culprit. It’s a good idea to start with messaging apps. If you’ve recently installed a new app that needed access to the Phone app, try removing it or revoking its access to the Phone app.
