Setting of microphone user permisson RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I want to change the visual state of my application (Windows 8.1) depending on what choice the user made on the permission access of the microphone. It appears the only way I found is by trying to access to the microphone and wait for an access denied error. But that is way too late to have a meaningful visual cue shown to the user. Is there an API (Windows 8.1) providing access to that permission value and optimally an event for any change?

  • Hello,

    Calling the InitializeAsync method is the only proper way to understand whether the user has provided a consent to access the MicroPhone or not. There are no other API's to know what the state of the user's decision is.
