Whatsapp audio goes bad after a few minutes

Every time I make a call on Whatsapp, after about 3/5/8/10/15/20/30 minutes the sound goes bad like I can barely hear the other person, voice doesn’t sound clear, like I’m hearing them through a microwave or something. I hang up and call back and it does the same thing after a few minutes. It doesn’t do that on regular phone calls so it’s not my phone, and it does it on WiFi AND 4G. I have no idea how to fix this and it’s very annoying. Any solutions?

Clarification Request
Way back when

I had an older smart phone and it just barely worked on such apps. Now that most smartphones have better CPUs and such, I rarely hear of this issue. What is this phone?

Try end tasking all other apps first.

Maybe it's not your problem at all

If you are facing poor quality voice calls at once or in a few minutes, drop outs or you can't make or receive calls, it is almost certainly because of your connection. The problem might not even be from your side: the person you're talking with will also need to ensure they have a good connection. But if the connection is bad, you can use Speedify
