FM RADIO activates MIC!

How can we run "Track ID" from FM Radio if FM Radio OCCUPIES THE MIC!!!

When I got this phone NEW, i could run Shazam, or Track ID on FM radio. In fact, FM RADIO app has a TRACK ID option within the Menu so please don't tell me it's not meant to be done!! (The radio  is NOT a s/w radio but a real radio in the phone...requires headphones to be plugged in as antenna)


However, Everytime I try to Track ID some FM song, Track ID complains that "Some app is using the mic" and it won't work.


well.....the FM RADIO app ITSELF is activating and occupying the MIC!!! How lame!

WHY FM RADIO needs use the mic?


FM RADIO APP v. 3.0.A.0.8


Android 4.0.4

Build 6.1.1.B.1.54


Can someone help? This used to work earlier but some update has ruined it.

Maybe OK Google voice detection causes a problem.

Open Google Now-long press the home button

Go to Settings-slide your finger left to right

Go to Voice Detection and uncheck the appropriate options.
