    samsung galaxy s8 microphone is looking strange. I dictate a lot into my phone by voice and the mike works fine but previously the mike icon had always been green. then a few weeks ago it turned blue. then it went back to green for a short while and now its blue again. the mike also now has the word 'Google' below it. I can't help being suspicious - is google listening to what I say? why is the mike icon changing colour?

    if i go inti any any app where I need to type something I get the keyboard and I press the microphone icon (circled in red) and then I get the mike and then I can dictate - screenshots attached. The icon is blue but it used to be green and I don't remember seeing 'Google' below it before.

    yes but the mike icon used to be green, so I'm wondering if this change was due to an update or is there a setting in the phone that changes the mike from samsung-controlled to google controlled (?)
