    Hi there!

    If you're here, I hope you're enjoying the newly released OxygenOS Pie Community Build on your OnePlus 3/3T ;)

    But, there's a serious bug which bothers a lot (me atleast)

    Mic doesn't seem to work when earphones are connected in mostly all apps, except the Dialer app. Normal calling is fine, but Mic doesn't work in WhatsApp Calls, Sound Recorder app and in PUBG. I've So, I found a temporary fix for it.

    I started checking all the apps which use the mic & then it striked my mind that it is Google Assistant which keeps listening at all times! So, it seems that in OOS Pie, there's an issue which causes Google Assistant to always occupy the mic. This shouldn't be the case in my opinion as there are a lot of people who use Google Assistant.

    NOTE : It is still a BUG and needs to be fixed. This is only a temporary solution that I found while I was messing up with logs and stuff, to investigate this issue.


    1. Open Google App.

    2. Press 'More' on the bottom right, and then 'Settings'.


    3. Press 'Voice', then 'Voice Match' and turn 'Access with Voice Match' off.

    It seems there's some issue with the Google App or Google Play Services app that comes pre-installed with the ROM.

    Before disabling this setting:-

    After disabling it:-

    This applies to the 'leaked' Closed Beta build as well as the new 'Community Build'.

    Let me know if it fixed the issue for you! ;)

    I always disable as many google products as possible on my OOS installations. Google app is the first one to get kicked. I guess that's why I never had that bug when I was on community beta.

    Guys, I am experiencing issue with mic during calls as I perfectly able to hear clear voice of the caller but in turn caller isn't able to hear my voice at times very very low voice with distortion or noise. But if I respond to them by keeping mic area of my 3t quite near mouth or turn on speaker mode then caller is able to hear my voice. Can someone guide on this or share some reliable solution to stated matter.
