    Been searching around for why microphone opens with the camera and all I'm finding are privacy related links.

    Anyone know if there is some hotword or phrase to take a picture rather than saying Hey Google take a picture? That seems to reopen the camera app through assistant and not use the currently open window. I figured if microphone is already on then maybe just say "take a picture" or similar to voice commands in sammy.

    It would make sense that the microphone is activated when you open the Camera, since it needs to be ready in case you take a video.

    Figured that would turn on after switching to video tab. This stays on constant if camera is selected.

    Here's a thread about how it works on Samsung phones, and I presume it's the same for Pixels (and any other Android phone): https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/...on/td-p/630263

    Interesting I wonder how long it has been like that. Without the microphone in use indicator I wouldn't think twice about camera having access in permissions.
