It looks like Intercom added microphone support recently (android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO) but it appears to be required not optional - this is reducing the number of devices we can install on - specifically some tablets that don’t have microphones.  It seems like this should be optional by default?

 

I think you need to add:

<uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.microphone" android:required="false" />

Nothing about this permission is mentioned in the readme on the github, while other permissions are called out.
