  1. My mic will work in party chat but not game chat


    Ok so for the past week or so, I have not been able to communicate in game chat in any game I play in. But when I go to party chat, my mic works just fine and everyone can hear me. When I am playing Call Of Duty, it does not even show that I have a mic plugged in. Can someone please help me figure out this issue? My controller doesn't need to be updated as I have already checked that, but I cannot seem to figure out what the issue could be and I really don't want to buy a new headset if that is the problem. I have also tried it with a different controller and it has the same issue, so I am thinking that it is my headset that is the problem My mic will work in party chat but not game chat :(

    :)

    Kinect

    I use Kinect as a mic for Ghosts but it has very big limitations. The Kinect in general has a setting that allows it to pick up your voice and use it as a mic if no mic is plugged in. This works on several games but not Ghosts. Ghosts does not recognize
    the Xbones mic and will not try to use it. So you can use the mic to chat, but only if you are in a party. You can host a party switch to game chat and nothing will happen, it will not recognize the mic. But if you stick with party chat in a gamemode that
    allows you to play with party chat, then you can chat with your party, but you will never be able to chat with the lobby using the Kinect in Ghosts, at least as of now and the current updates.

    .

    So there you have it, Use the Kinect for friends in a party, but no Kinect for game chat in ghosts. So looking forward to the adapter when it comes out for my headset.

    Cant use mic on windows 10

    Hi Isaiah,

    It seems the issue is related to the in-game chat option not working properly in a streaming format since your mic and headsets works in other formats and they work separately on different displays.

    What happens if you invite your brother's profile to an Xbox Live party chat and communicate that way? Is there an audio or mic issue when forming a party chat and choosing to not speak in game chat?

    Hi AwesomelySavage! My name is Ricardo an independent advisor ready to help you with this situation!

    If the problem were the Headset you could not use it at Xbox Live parties either, the problem actually lies in your privacy settings, Child's account cant view their privacy settings an adult is required to add him to a Microsoft family here

    https://account.microsoft.com/family/

    After the adult account creates the family and adds the minor's account to his family In order for you to be able to chat multiplayer, you must change the privacy settings of your account. It can be done here
