I am glad I got android 12 because now whenever I use an app I get a little notification telling me that hey this app is using your mic and the apps that use it I don't even activate anything to use my mic it just turns on and turns off after a couple of seconds... With out my permission has anyone else experienced this or is this a bug?

If you use Google for voice commands this will happen. It is constantly listening for your command. It picks up noise in the background and will start listening if it thinks you have a command. I turned it off needless to say

It's one of the newest addition to Android 12. It informs you of which app is using your microphone at any point in time.

Hello @SirTJ ,

It is a not a bug,  its a new feature introduced as part of privacy for Android 12.
