Voice Wake Up Not Working

Got a warranty replacement from Samsung about 2 weeks ago, and everything has been working just fine. 2 days ago I notice that Bixby and Google Assistant are no longer responding to my wake up commands.

I went into Bixby settings to adjust wake up sensitivity, but when I go in there, the phone freezes for about 5 seconds before sending me back to the previous screen and giving me a popup saying that voice wake up isn't working.

I've also tried using Bixby by holding in the Bixby button, but it immediately gives me the "I didn't catch that" response.

Anyone else dealing with this? Any suggestions?

Found a fix for this in case anyone else is having this problem. Went into settings/apps/app permissions/microphone and disabled microphone permissions for every app that doesn't really need it. It very well could have only been 1 specific app but I took it a step further and denied permission for anything that shouldn't actually need it.

Bixby/Google Assistant started responding to wake up commands immediately.
