My earbuds microphone only works in calls, but not for voice recording/messaging

Basically, as the title says, whenever I record a Whatsapp voice message or record a voice note in the voice recorder app, only the phone’s built-in microphone is in use, despite the earbuds being connected, the buds’ mic only works when I call someone.

Any idea how I can make the buds’ mic work on all apps.

(Note, on Whatsapp, the buds’ mic works on calls but not on voice messages, so this is a case where the issue exists and doesn’t exist on the same app)
