I don't understand why there need to be that indicator light on, when using front camera for video?
More i understand that there is indicator for back camera when it is on use but on front, you see the screen anyway.
So please add option to disable that "camera in use" indicator light.
Also, there is a bug at least with Google duo, when you rotate your device, it left dark rounded dot on the place where the camera normally is 🙂

It's a privacy feature, so you can know if the camera is active without you needing it.
Yes, apps ask you if they can use the camera, but you never know if an app can bypass that permission. And yes, maybe an app can bypass even that indicator, but let's hope that's really hard to do.

i agree, i think that should be the same kind of indicator for microphone too.

No and absolutely no.
We have indicator led on the device already. It can be there if needed but for now, it is your way, if you want use example 3rd wideangle lens top of the camera.
You don't have indicator for back camera. If you have this "save the children" mentality over this, then but it on security option but it not needed to be forced for every one.

The sensor privacy indicator will be expanded for Android 12 - as that is a big part of the Android 12 changes. Also/specifically for when apps are calling the use of these sensors, from the background.
