Below is an explanation why it happens and a step-by-step instruction how to activate your microphone to enable voice recording.
When a user first tries to record his voice using an app after installing iOS8, he is asked if he wants to allow this particular app to use a microphone. In case the user taps NO without much pondering over it, the microphone is disabled in the app. This means no voice recording is ever possible with this app. However, the user can still activate the microphone if he goes to SETTINGS.
Here are five steps to help you with voice recording issue:
1. Go to SETTINGS
2. Tap PRIVACY
3. Tap MICROPHONE
4. Swipe button next to the app left to right so the button becomes green. (gray button means MIC is OFF, green button means MIC is ON)
