It’s in human nature to be clumsy sometimes and many of you might have spilt water on your smartphone. At times, the water might have been trapped inside your smartphone’s speaker, accidentally. Now all you can hear is a muffled sound and that is irritating and painful. Tired of hitting your smartphone again and again to expel the water? Confused about how to remove water from phone speaker? Worry not, here are some steps you can use to clean water from your smartphone’s speaker easily.
Check for built-in feature
Hearing the muffled sound for the first time might have scared you by thinking you might have damaged your phone. In most cases, many phones have some water protection even with no IP rating. As a result, many companies put built-in features for cleaning smartphone’s speakers. For example, in MIUI, it can be found in Setting>Additional Setting>Clear Speaker. Try searching for similar phrases like “clean speaker”, “speaker cleaner”, etc.

Use third party application
If you are not successful in finding any such option, try using a third-party application like Speaker cleaner – Remove water & fix sound. The app will play the sound in such a frequency that the water will eject from your speaker automatically. Install the application and grant permissions. Start the app and run it until you hear a clear sound and don’t see any moisture near the speaker grill (make sure you are not connected to any Bluetooth earphones or speakers during this time).
Let it sit
If none of the above methods work, let the phone sit for a while in a downwards facing position (of the speaker). The water may take time to evaporate or eject from the speaker grill. Just leave the phone at room temperature for 24 hours and see if it fixes the problem. Also, we do not advise keeping the phone in direct sunlight or an extremely hot place in order to achieve this solution as it will damage the internals of your Android smartphone.
