I tried everything except for contacting Apple. Nothing worked. The only time my microphone works is when I am using FaceTime. Is something not making it compatible with Facebook messenger video or calls?

I'm having a similar issue. It works for phone, but not for recording video. It makes voice memos, but won't work with an app that has a camera. I can't find a setting that would help, even in the apps and in settings. I"m going to have to back up and restore if I can't figure it out.
