Original story (published on May 09, 2022) follows:

Lenovo Smart Display is a smart home device that combines the features of a smart speaker with a large in-built screen. Launched in 2018, it was the first smart device with a screen that came with Google Assistant.

Users have the option to choose between the 8-inch or 10-inch Full HD displays with both variations featuring a full range speaker that comes with two tweeters and multi-room audio support.


It is also tightly integrated into the Google ecosystem and even has native support for Google Duo for video calling.

That said, many Lenovo Smart Display owners are now facing voice echo issues when using the device for Google Duo calls.

Reports suggest the issue surfaced a few weeks ago. Users say the issue is rendering the Lenovo Smart Display calling feature completely useless.

Moreover, generic troubleshooting solutions such as restarting the device and resetting settings do not seem to help. Below are some reports from Lenovo Smart Display users facing voice echo issues on Google Duo.


How to stop echoing on all devices? In our family we have multiple Lenovo Smart Home Displays, when calling they have begun echoing? I have also used an iPhone to call the home display and in that scenario, only the iPhone hears the echo. When calling Home display to Home display, both participants can hear an echo which suggests it’s the Home Display. We have had this issue on three different home displays which makes it seem like it’s a software issue? I have tried unplugging it and restarting the device to no avail.

This last week (week 17) there is a very loud and distinct audio echo when making calls from and to a Lenovo smart display, I can hear myself loud and clear echo in what I just said with a slight delay. This has never happened before and making video calls has worked fine since I bought the device but this last week the echo on sound has started, making it very difficult to place video calls on the device. Device restarted, internet restarted, good internet connectivity.

Unfortunately, we are yet to come across any official word on the matter from Lenovo or Google. We hope the two tech giants work together and fix the Lenovo Smart Display voice echo issue on Google Duo in the coming days.

When they do, we will be updating this space to reflect the same so stay tuned to PiunikaWeb.
