gBoard Microphone Doesn't Work

Note 2 user here. I love using the Note for reading and drafting ideas. I use the Google gBoard keyboard, which overall works great. But, for some reason the voice-to-text feature doesn’t work on my Note 2. I have enabled microphone permission on the gBoard app, turned on other relevant permissions, but when I click the microphone button on gBoard it turns on then turns off. Doesn’t record any audio or generate any text. Can the developers investigate and enable text-to-speech support for gBoard?
