Google has integrated its own applications with the Android operating system. The Google application enables us to find quick answers, explore our interests, and stay up to date with the latest news.

In a nutshell, it is a one-stop application for everything you need like nearby shops and restaurants, live sports scores, schedules and even movie times, casts, and reviews.

However, there is a new bug that has appeared with the latest Google app update to v12.33.13. The bug breaks the voice call function on some LG phones, as reported by several users.


Updating to the latest Google app destroys the voice call functionality of my LG G7 ThinQ. I cannot make or receive calls while the latest version of the app is installed, and I have to revert to an older version to restore call functionality. Everything else works fine, including text messages and mobile data.

Horrible. The lastest update broke my phone. It’s a new issue with LG phones where it makes so you are unable to make or receive calls. I uninstalled updates for Google. Whenever I have other updates and go to do them manually, Google also updates automatically. It’s very annoying to have to keep go…

On Google Support, a product expert instantly replied that he has forwarded the issue to the Google Search team for further investigation. And the Google Search team responded back with a solution.


If you are one of the LG users facing Google app v12.33.13 voice call function issue, then updating to the latest beta will solve the problem. You can download this update directly from Google Play Store.

There is also one more solution that involves downgrading to the previous version, but we suggest you update to the latest beta. We hope this solves your voice call function issue with the update to Google app v12.33.13.
