Microphone access in Forge apps (Codegeist)

Currently, forge apps cannot access the user’s microphone. In all browsers, users are asked for consent before the microphone can be accessed - but Forge apps are not allowed to even ask the users for consent.

This limits the kind of apps that can be built for Codegeist - e.g lots of possibilities around voice processing are excluded.

All it’ll take to change this, is to add the string: allow=“microphone *” to the iframe declaration that loads the forge app.

Could this please be done, at least for the Codegeist Hackathon?
