  1. [PC] Xbox Game bar push to talk not working in background


    Hi, I recently read this post:



    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...rking-in/4332cc52-e40f-438b-83c5-e0bd0403807c

    I have the same issue. My push to talk only works when game bar is open and visible, being the "active window". It does not work on desktop, in sea of thieves, or anywhere unless it is open and visible.

    It seems the moderator that locked it said it was revived by another post? But I could not find any post about it anywhere. I found a couple posts on reddit from a month ago by people who had the same issue, and nobody has found a solution.

    I have a loud house, and when I'm in an xbox party I have to use push to talk. It's mandatory unless I want to spam everyone with noise. So now I just have to manually mute my mic and manually unmute it whenever I have to talk. It seems that this
    has been an issue for at least a month and nobody seems to be able to find a solution.

    Has anyone found a workaround for this issue?

    Thank you.

    :)

    It's astonishing how this hasn't been fixed ever since the game bar came out. Please Microsoft, do something. It's infuriating to stop playing the game and open game bar just to tell my friends important information of location of enemy, or such.

    Even then, it crashes pretty frequently when I have to open game bar to talk to friends.

    Hi Alk,

    I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing this issue with PTT on the Xbox Game Bar while in an Xbox Live party. I know it can be frustrating to have to open the overlay anytime you want to talk with friends using PTT. When did this issue start occurring?
    Did PTT on the Xbox Game Bar work as intended before a recent update to the Game Bar?

    There may not be a solution if this feature has encountered a bug and the only way to fix it would be to report the issue to the program developers to look into the issue and introduce a fix in a patch. The best way to report this issue to the developers
    is to use the
    Feedback Hub app on Windows 10
    . Just search for the app in the search bar or install it from the Microsoft Store.

    Any issues with the Xbox Game Bar or any gaming issues with the Xbox platform on Windows 10 should go through the Feedback Hub app if a know solution or workaround cannot be found.

    I discovered this exact same issue last night, between State of Decay 2 and the Xbox Game Bar.

    My workaround was to PTT transmit with the game-bar open, then close the bar overlay to return to gameplay - the problem this created was that I was always transmitting, which does not help in your scenario.
    Yes, I have that same behavior. It's frustrating.
