Get more granular control over when you provide your phone access to your microphone.

I recommend using this feature only for instances when you need to temporarily disable microphone access. The use cases might be related to you wanting to get a more granular control of your privacy for a short amount of time.

Please do not forget to enable the access back up to ensure your apps that rely on your microphone operate correctly. It can be done by turning the microphone access toggle back on.
