  4. Issue also persists with stand-alone Google Voice , without Gmail.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:
Hoping it would work the same as with the standard Chrome browser

Reproduces how often:

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10, Version 1803 OS Build 17134.706
Brave browser Version 0.63.48 Chromium: 74.0.3729.108 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
Not an issue with Linux, only with Windows. Have used all 3 fingerprinting protection options, all cookies enabled, site settings permissions for microphone set to “Ask before accessing”, but none of it helps. Could this topic be reopened? Thanks in advance.

SOLVED !! (by accident). So, all this time my site settings were as shown below, with the “Default” selection, and I could not make calls with Google Voice or Hangouts:


Then, on a hunch, I selected the same microphone, but not as a Default, and I can now make calls. Also, the Google Voice link got automatically added to the “Allow” listing:


I can now re-select the original “Default” microphone and it still works:


Can’t explain it but I am not complaining. I love this browser !!
