When I disable the microphone on the V3 camera (android app), it also disables the sound

seems like weird behavior to me. Is this a bug? can I change it?

Maybe I don’t understand what you are saying. Of course the sound from the camera is disabled if you disable the mic - that’s where the sound comes from. Or do you mean something else?

I think I was able to recreate what the OP mentioned. If you are in live view, and either press the speaker first, or press the mic, your icons show like this:

Now click the hang up, both the speaker and the mic turn off. You’d have to turn the speaker back on to hear a response

Yeah, @Omgitstony is right. I always want the speaker to be on, to hear what’s going on. I just don’t understand why after I use the microphone and turn it off, it turns off the speaker .

If it helps to explain, I’m using it as a baby cam, so after I use the mic to talk to my son, I still want to hear him after I stop using the mic

In testing, my guess is it does that because the two way audio for the v3 is full duplex. Where you can listen and talk at the same time, as opposed to the v2, where you click and hold talk, speak then let off the button and your words are sent to the camera then you can listen for a responce. I guess I think of the V3s two way audio as more of a phone call, press mic when you want to talk and listen to the other end, then hit hang up when done. As an included feature, I’d hope to see a mute the mic only button, or like the OP referenced, click the mic to turn it off but leave the speaker on.

After talking, you could just keep the mic on and listen, shouldn’t need to do anything extra to be able to hear anything if the speaker is enabled.
