I hate to add to the mix, but I recently (within the past week-ish) updated by Google Pixel 4 to Android 11 and have experienced this issue multiple times today during phone calls. I don’t make a lot of phone calls, so today may very well be the first time I’ve made phone calls since the update.
As I understand it, disabling the microphone basically means I can’t do use the microphone with any function? So, for instance, “Hey Google…” also won’t work, in addition to the microphone in the search bar and in Chrome?
I know you said there would be an update posted. Will it be in this thread that I am presumable going to be subscribed to by posting this? (I think that’s how I have my settings).
EDIT:Rant. This update (A11) has been a p.i.t.a. Nova Launcher wasn’t working quite right and touch areas in the bottom of the screen for apps seem to be covered by the system app. Now this.
I’m guessing Removing 11 would involve backing up and restoring data. Not gonna be fun either way. Hoping for a fix soon.
