    Hi one plus team, need a indication in top bar section, if any apps are accessing the camera or mic. Please try to provide this feature in coming beta or release program for all one plus devices.

    From android 11 this is the case, so just be patient it will come.

    Also As per android right for apps, an app can only use your camera if you allowed it in permissions. Don't trust an app, don't allow it.

    But we need to know whether it's accessing mic or camera in the background

    As @Tokolozi already mentioned, this is part of Android 11. You will have this once your phone is updated to the latest Android version.

    This is a system setting, it's unrelated to the app you're using.

    So, it is not implemented by Google.
    Can’t change or add the icons on the notification bar

    Might be overkill to show it on the stock camera app for example for the camera and mic usage is rather unavoidable in a camera app 😉
    So I believe very few apps has the right to use the camera or mic without the icons.
    Stock camera don't show. For example Facebook and for DHL Express shows it. I guess it can be a API differance. 3rd party apps probably relies on camera2 API (or older API) while stock camera probably uses a device specific API.
    Strange if it's different on Pixels.
