My Pixel has had the issue as well, in fact it was so bad I couldn’t even get it to work rebooting via safe mode (as someone suggested). Had to let the power drain completely before it came back. Tried something else today. Blocked Google Play Services from accessing the mic, so far so good. It’s been working all day and I haven’t had it work that long since I first bought it.
