Nexus 5 users can now find some reprieve from the widespread audio-bug problem as an industrious Android developer, Francisco Franco, has released a fix for it following the July 2016 security update.
Several affected users have been reportedly flooding Reddit and other online support forums with complaints regarding the inability to adjust in-call volume or mute apps or adjust the phone's volume sliders as they often became inaudible, due to the inherent bug in the Android coding.
Consequently, the developers have now acknowledged the issue and identified a bug in the code that leads to audio-memory-allocation failure.
An official fix is still awaited while the veteran Android developer Franco has released a fix for the issue, which is reportedly safe to install on your Nexus smartphone.
This fix is meant for all those Nexus 5 users who have installed the latest Android Marshmallow firmware from Google or facing persistent audio problems on their device. Meanwhile, the others who have not yet updated their Android operating system to the latest firmware are advised to hold back the upgrade process until an official patch is released for the bug.
