What's the purpose to change your language in the middle of your post?

Just asking because I see this frequently here and I have absolutely no idea why people think that's useful besides trolling others.

@Gouen Do you have the chance to try a different microphone?

Yes I have a cable for IEM with a microphone ending with a combo headphone 3.5mm jack and an Apple earpods. I verified both is working on my laptop and both are working with other apps. And previously version .151 WW, Google Meet is working fine with 3.5mm mic.

Simply because I slept 3 hours and I'm in the fog

I appreciate your comment and provided solution but the solution seemed to be targeting PC.
Yes I understand there's a lot of alternative meeting solutions out there but I have a job and I'm working in a company where majority of the staffs voted to use Google mail/meet as our service provider.
None the less, I'm looking for a solution/explanation for ROG Phone 5 Google Meet mic issue.

Haha, I know too well, the boss wants free applications, that it works and without paying the professional version, like Google Workspace which includes Meet and support 🙂

For the resolution of the audio problem, it's pretty much the same for any operating system to which you need to add permissions on Android.
Here is a more precise link, I didn't need it (see the tests below)

My firmware is .176
I just tested a Meet meeting from Gmail, after giving the requested permissions the audio works with all my microphones, (Internal rog5, Jack 3.5 and Bleutooth.)
-Note: I don't have the standalone Google Meet app, just Gmail (Meet bottom right) in Gmail.
It duplicates Gmail, tries to uninstall it.
Check Google Store Updates
