As follows from the description of the problem, the sound transmission can be blocked completely, suddenly appear and again disappear. The manufacturer some time followed the complaint before you respond.
In one of the answers Google employee wrote that the problem is not software and therefore to solve it upgrade is not possible. Apparently, the reason lies in the small crack in the place where are important for all three microphones communication. Depending on the ambient temperature and the housing problem can appear and disappear.
Google offer a Hairdryer, as suggested by one of the owners of Pixel, but warned that this method of “liberation” of the membrane would not work at all. The most correct way is to replace the smartphone’s warranty.
