    This past week I've been having a weird problem. For some reason Siri would start trying to listen into what I'm saying and when using iMessage sometimes it would start recording my voice randomly. This happens maybe every couple of days randomly. I know this can't be a hardware issue, but it concerns me...

    This might have started happening when I installed the FB messenger app...

    EDIT: I'm going to uninstall fb messenger to see if it solves the problem.

    When I had iOS 8 (B1) it would often send 'recorded' messages. They were usually 0:00 or 0:01 in length. Don't know what triggers that bug but it did happen. Never had an issue with the Siri comment. I'm thinking it's actually a keyboard bug and not the functionality themselves.

    And, for the record, 'Hey Siri' only listens when connected to external power.

    Mine works without external power. 5s on Beta 5
    Once Siri is activated with the home button, she responds to 'hey siri' without any further button presses. Was the same on Beta 4 as well.

    Do you have a battery case?

    The point of "Hey Siri" is that you don't need to activate Siri with the home button. The phone can just be sitting on the table and plugged in and if you say "Hey Siri" then she will activate and listen to you. You could always say "Hey Siri" after Siri was activated:)

    Since I removed Facebook messages app it has been gone. No more randomness. I think Apple needs to look closely at what's in the FB app. Something doesn't seem right.

    UPDATE: It's been over a week now and I no longer receive this issue after I removed the Facebook Messenger App. I contacted Apple about this issue and I wait for their reply. I'll keep this post updated.
