Have you gone to Settings --> WhatsApp, Settings --> Viber, and Settings --> Skype and enabled the microphone for each of these?

The go to settings --> Privacy --> Microphone, and make sure those are enabled from there as well.


I have done that but still does not work. All you hear is a shee sound. Every other thing works fine. Like talking on a normal call, recording a video with a sound or the phone on a loud speaker.

Hi There,

As you stated Loudspeaker and other stuff works. I m assuming the noise cancelation mic which is probably messed up or the Siri Mic on the front camera flex is not that good.

Trying changing them. Hopefully it should work.

Also, Check if your phone is on IOS 11.0 or 11.2. If yes please upgrade

Please update to IOS 11.3.
