    no microphone on child account


    I can't get the microphone to work. Any suggestions?

    Equipment: Xbox One S; XBox standard controller; pdp AG9+ headset

    If I start a party on the child's account, the mic doesn't work.

    I can start a party on the parent's account and the mic works fine.

    The child's age is 13; all permissions are enabled.

    I've tried all the family settings to make sure that the child has permissions to chat. The child can hear other friends, but they can't hear him.

    Settings shows that the mic is on and the volume is turned up.

    The screen shows the headset and microphone, enabled, next to the battery.

    Speaking into the microphone is echoed in the headset earphones.

    I've tried restarting multiple times.

    I've tried different controllers (the controller works reliably with the parent account.)

    The mic worked for the child the first day he plugged it in; don't know what changed to make it stop working.

    :)

    Some additional information:

    - this is not a hardware problem. The microphone works fine on the parents account

    - I created a new child account and gave it exactly the same permissions as the child account that does not work.

    The microphone works fine on the newly created child account.

    The party feedback showing that microphone works shows up for an instant when switching to the account that does not work.

    I tried resetting all family settings for the account that does not work, but that did not make a difference.

    You may have a restriction set in the account.

    Set content restrictions on Windows 10 and Xbox One
    Applies to: Microsoft account

    Content restrictions help keep the kids in your Microsoft family safer on Windows 10 and Xbox One devices. Here's a few ways to use them, and some related safety features:

    Answer kids’ requests to change content restrictions in email, or if you share a device – say, a family Xbox One or Windows 10 PC – you can approve their requests on the spot. Of course, you can always respond to all
    requests anytime on
    account.microsoft.com/family
    .

    Tips

    • After you’ve set content restrictions for your child, it’s a good idea to turn on Activity reporting so you get weekly reports of their online activity. You can block or allow things right from the report. Go to
      account.microsoft.com/family and sign in with your Microsoft account, then find your child’s name and select
      Activity.
    • To keep track of what your child buys, go to
      account.microsoft.com/family
      and sign in with your Microsoft account. Find your child’s name, then select
      More options > Spending to view purchase history and payment options, or put money in their Microsoft account.

    They may have manually muted it through Xbox itself.. there's an option for it at settings > audio. you have the option to mute the mic there..

    I also recall someone telling me they have to have the people added as a friend to talk to them? idk if that's true

    Im sure child accounts are locking from communicating to anyone but friends on the account. Give it a quick check on the xbox and see what restrictions are placed on the account.

    Delete account. Recover account. Will work
    This did not work for me. In the end, I assigned the headset to the parent instead of the child, allowing the child to use the microphone when logged in.

    In addition to this Xbox bug, it would be great to add a feature to permit testing the microphone similar to the way the controller permits testing its buttons. When there are so many possible ways for this to go wrong, it is frustrating to have very little
    assistance from the console to narrow down the possibilities.
