Hi. I realize that my Redmi Note 7 always use the phone microphone. When I connect my headphones, the sound plays in my headphones, but if I record a Whatsapp audio it uses the phone microphone instead of headphones microphone. And I also tried with a friend's Redmi Airdots S and same thing, earbuds works but can't use the mic for record wpp audio, it always use the build-in mic.

It's annoying, cause now I'm using a true wireless earbuds and I can't record a whatsapp audio without the phone in my hands... Kinda the whole point of a wireless earbuds.

Already:
- Re-pair
- Reboot after pair
- Clean all devices from bt list.

Info:
Redmi Note 7
ROM: Latest official global ROM
MIUI version: Global 11.0.1
Android Version: 10
Earbuds: Haylou GT1 plus

Am I the only one with this problem?
Probably. Anyway, did you try recording your voice in a different app? If the other app works that'd mean this is WA bug or may be just not compatible with WA.

Try few things-
1. record voice in WA and a different app with earbud.
Check the results. If earbud works in diff app, than blame WA.

2. record voice in WA and a different app with an wired headset.
Check the results. If wired headeet works in both apps, blame earbud.

1. Same results. I tried to record a sound with Audio Recorder and used the buil-in mic too.
2. It actually worked. Using wired headset, it uses the headset mic. But I can't blame the earbud, it's brand new, and I tried with Airdots S too and neither worked. I mean, the wireless headsets have a mic cause it can be used, but my phone thinks it can't.

Thanks for sharing this tip. This was so simple, yet i didn't thought of it
I am facing the same problem with my Redmi Earbuds. I hope this tip helps me to identify where the fault lies.
