Microphone Security: multiple apps recording simultaneously?

[ Edited ]

Does anyone know if it is possible for multiple 3rd party applications to capture audio from the device microphone simultaneously? I would like to ensure that my app is the only one capturing the audio. Has anyone ever tried to detect when other apps are using the microphone?

 

If multiple apps can record simultaneously, this could be a pretty serious security concern. See more here:

Thank you.

A second application attempting to use the microphone would get an error message saying that it is not available.
