The issue is with the Ring app using the microphone when viewing live video. I just cleared the Ring app cache and all storage then went back to the app and logged in while in my car connected to Bluetooth then touched a camera to view video and the app did not make a call until after I allowed audio access to the microphone. The app developers have linked the audio ability to speak through your phone to the camera and somehow use a phone number in your contacts to make a call to link it instead of going directly over WiFi or your phones data connection to send and receive audio to and from the camera. If you deny access to audio it will not dial a call and it will not provide live video, all you will see are past recordings. I've experienced this problem since I purchased my Ring cameras in 2017. This issue is long overdue for a resolution.
