    Hey everyone!

    I have a strange problem with my 7 Pro.
    It started a few days ago that I can't use my microphone anymore for a few apps.

    When I start to record a video with the camera app, it just gives me the message "recording stopped due to error".
    Even with Whatsapp I can't record voice memos for anyone. I can hold the "record" button but after I release it, the memo instantly deletes itself (like you would swipe to the left while recording to delete the memo).

    I already deleted the Cache and Data from the two apps. Nothing helps.
    After a restart of my phone I can use the microphone for like 10-15 minutes and then the problem happens again.

    What's curious is that I can make calls via whatsapp (or normal phone calls) without problems.

    I'm on OB14. And I have not planned to factory reset my whole phone because of it (saving pictures etc. takes too long). Oh and I have no shady apps installed. Just apps like Instagram, Whatsapp, Reddit..

    Anyone here with the same problem?

    You didn't happen to sideload wallpapers not meant for your device, did you?

    Also, beta problems get reported to beta thread.
