Static/popping sounds on speakers and earphones after update

Hi,
I'm experiencing static/popping sounds from both my speakers and earphones after the update.

I tried adjusting various sound settings but it didn't work. Does anyone else have the same problem? sad

Only when playing video clips on the Sky Sports app.

@eggleo

 

Could you try to replicate the problem while in safe mode?

Do you experience this with the preloaded apps or only third party apps?

It's *only* the sky sports app so I'm not massively bothered. No other phone or tablet in the household does it though (with that app).

In that case, there's nothing wrong with your phone, you have to contact the app developer and they, not Sony, have to address this issue.

Just because an app/game works ok with a device it doesn't mean it will be the same for ALL devices.

I can't try in safe mode cause most apps are disabled and I can't use any browsers.

But my problem is easy to replicate and playing music videos on YouTube gives the popping/static sound too.
