Instagram is listening to you (part 2)
Damián Le Nouaille-Diez

It happens to me all the time.

It is worth noting that the red micro phone bar only appears when a BACKGROUND app uses microphone.

Something very strange is that when I quite the Instagram by sliding up on iPhone X, the red microphone shows up for a few seconds before changing to normal.

I guess is when Instagram is on the foreground, it listens to microphone “randomly”

That’s why it always asks for microphone access even if you just need camera to send a silent story.
