It should have a mic since it's a phone, and I assume it's working OK for phone calls. But since this is quite a recent Chinese phone, no Google in China, could be an issue/bug with it and Google, and needs a bug-fix update. I presume the Redmi came with Google services and it isn't a PRC version. Xiaomi devices come with a heavily modified version of Android called MIUI.
