Probably many of you have faced the bug with audio not being recorded in apps like camera, WhatsApp, Telegram... You can try disabling Voice Match. If this works, audio recording will be permanently fixed but you won't be able to use the voice assistant.

If you still want to use Voice Match while being able to record audio in any app, I found this workaround:

1. Wipe Google app data.
2. Go to Settings/Apps & Notifications/Default apps and set Google as Assist app.
3. Press back and enter the 'Assist app' settings ⚙, enable 'Voice Match', enable 'Hey Google' and follow the steps to set the voice command.
4. Go back to Default apps/Assist app,
select 'None' and then select 'Google' again.
5. Go back to 'Voice Match', disable 'Hey Google' and re-enable it again.

It sounds weird but it works. The only 'little' downside is that this is a temporary workaround because every reboot will mute your audio records and you will have to repeat steps 4 and 5.

Hope this helped.
