    I have the same problem, so I go to "OK GOOGLE" detection, and switch off the "from any screen". Done.


    Happy New Year to you all!

    I have owned a Huawei P9 Lite for roughly 6 months now and am quite happy with it. However, for the past few days, I've been having the following problem ...

    Whenever I open the camera, I get an error, which, roughly translated from Dutch, says "Camera is recording audio. can't open at the moment"

    (I added a screenshot)

    If I tap "OK", the error message disappears, but pops right up again seconds later. I can use the camera, but it is of course very annoying if you can't see what you're snapping pictures of.

    I've been Googling about this and I found out that Quicksearchbox refers to a search box or Google Now. However, I do not have a search box widget on my screen and I also don't see the connection between the camera and that, nor the link with Google Now.

    I can't find any topics about the entire error on Google.

    Does anyone have any idea what's going on? I would prefer not to do a factory reset if not necessary.

    Guys, I came across a full instruction on how to solve this problem. And to my happiness one of the methods helped to overcome it on Huawei P9. Here's the 100%-working solution:

    Quick calling disable might help to solve the problem. In doing so, you should navigate “Settings” -> ”Voice control” -> ”Quick calling” -> Disable this option.

    Hey guys i just fixed it like 15 mins ago.

    so apparently the problem occurs when u have the google app that can recognize your voice when you say like "OK google"

    so i figure i can just disable(deny) Google permission to use microphone. it works but i wont be able to quickly do a quick google search by using my voice, which used to be very helpful to me.

    so what i did next instead is to go to the Google App i found on the menu. Settings, > Voice > "OK google" detection and just disable "From any screen". tested it out and it works.

    by enabling this you can say ok google anywhere INCLUDING IN CAMERA MODE. but by disabling it you will need to be on the home menu for it to work if im not mistaken.

    so yea thats it. hope this helps

    I've had the same issue coming up if I try to take videos. Still photos were fine but I had that same error message (in English) whenever I tried to record something.
    I fixed it by opening the camera app on normal photo mode then swiped right to settings and then scrolled down to the bottom and clicked restore defaults. A message then pops up to say 'camera settings will be restored to their default values.' I clicked ok and then swiped back onto camera mode. A couple of messages came up for permissions like allowing location service so I accepted the ones I wanted. I had no message about ok Google though as I don't use it so maybe it's best to decline that if it comes up on yours. I then clicked on the video function, pressed record and it records as normal. Problem fixed! Yay!
    Hope this works for you.

    I have a Huawei P9 with the same issue.
    Try this as it worked for me.

    Apps connected

    Then disconnect any apps that might be using the mic all the time.
    I had 'Google sing' and some other Google game related crap.

    I disconnected them both and so far so good.
    Worth a shot! Good luck.

    I've got a P9, and had the same error message "camera is currently recording audio. will not be able to record right now". The first 5 steps worked for me, and then:
    6. From any screen - disable.

    Hi all, I've tried all the above and it didn't work, very frustrating, but then I stumbled on a YouTube vid that did work. So on your P9, go to "Settings : Apps : Advanced (at the bottom) : App Permissions : Microphone and slide/switch off Google App". Hey Presto!! Video will record.

    This happened on my Mate 9. The persistent error message will pop up in every app that uses the microphone. Tried clearing cache, wiping cache partition but didn't help. The only way is to disable OK Google detection from any screen. Sad that there's no other way.

    So none of these suggestions worked for me, when trying to get rid of "is currently recording"

    So I did the only thing I could do and did a Network Settings Reset.

    Advanced Settings
    (Scroll down)
    Backup & reset
    Network Settings Reset.

    Hope I helped anyone, it was an annoying error to get rid of.
