Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

I’ve got every visible blocking method disabled, yet still can’t use my mic on a Google search.

I’ve also:

  1. Turned Shields Off
  2. Added [*.] to the always allow in brave cookie settings.
  3. Set the “Always allow forever” On in the popup.
  4. Tried in a new Private window
  5. Disabled all extensions
  6. Disabled my Firewall

Expected result:

To be able to search google with my Mic (pressing that little Microphone icon in the search bar).

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.47.171 Chromium: 109.0.5414.87 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Though this has been an ongoing issue for several past versions and I’m only now getting around to reporting it.

@J_Scott_Elblein What you’re showing has nothing to do with permission in the browser. It’s showing you don’t have internet…

… wait, so you’re saying I’m unable to tell if my computer has internet (other than with this issue)?


Haha, with some of the things I see on Reddit and here, it wouldn’t surprise me these days.

But let me be more serious now for a bit. What you’ve shared is a known issue, I guess. I’ll have to dig into it a bit more. But also going to tag in @Mattches to see if can be any more movement on this. Seems it’s been happening for years now. Kind of ridiculous

Yeah this is a known issue and has been for a while. I will ping some team members about this and check on what the status is here.

Let me add my voice: this is annoying and dissuades me from using BRAVE.

I cannot access the microphone, whenever I click on it says no internet connection. kindly get it fixed.
