    Q: Can I force the video record app to use my Bluetooth mic instead of the phone's mic?

    Details: I have a Bluetooth headset (earbuds and mic) that works great for phone calls. When I record a video with the default video app, it uses the phone's mic instead of the headset mic. I don't see anywhere in the settings where I can tell the video app which mic I'd prefer it to use.

    Hardware/SW versions:
    Pixel 2 XL
    TaoTronics TT-BH026 headset
    Camera App 5.1.018.xxxxxxxxx
    OS Android 8.1.0

    That will only work with devices that except external microphone input and most likely only wired.

    Thanks Mike. Do you know of a hack I could use to fake out the video app? Or a different video recorder app that allows the user to select the mic source?
