    somehow my phone mic isn't working i tried almost everything but it seems to never work even when i'm using a headset. Does it have to do with the software because the mic started to not work after i updated the latest software?

    p.s i'm currently using a Samsung A8 2018

    Well for the mic to not work through the device or through and external device like a headset there has to be a setting or perhaps a software glitch. I'm assuming that you've noticed this due to incoming or outgoing calls... have you tried recording video or using the voice recorder to see if either of those will capture sound?

    Have you wiped your partitions, cleared your caches, and rebooted the phone at least twice since the update?

    How tech savvy are you? This article is kind of old but the information should still work if you wanted to try and diagnose the issue yourself.

    Last but not least factory resets often help after major updates but only after everything else has failed.
