    Xbox app blocks game audio during chat


    When I join a friends party using the Windows 10 Xbox app, audio from other applications including my game are muted, but when I quit the party it goes back to normal. This makes it very hard to game and talk to friends on Xbox at the same time as my game
    audio is completely gone. Any help would be much appreciated.

    :)

    Hi crazyjbird44,

    I believe this is due to how the Xbox app audio is designed in that I think it prioritizes audio from the party chat when it's open and not from your applications in the background because your party audio device (your wireless headset and mic) is connecting
    to the app itself and not through a controller. I think that if the audio goes through a controller, that you'll be able to hear the party chat along with the game audio at the same time.

    I couldn't find anything in the Xbox app settings to get what you want without needing a controller but I'm not sure if there is anything in your Windows audio settings that can solve this problem. You can always go in there and check if there are any relevant
    settings.

    I recommend getting a controller and a gaming headset designed for Xbox One that has a headset adapter for the best gaming experience using the Xbox app on Windows 10

    Hello ,

    Thank you for keeping us updated. We recommend making sure
    Windows 10 is up to date
    . Also, what is the NAT type of the Xbox application? We will provide steps on how to locate the NAT type. Be sure to let us know the results!

    1. Launch the Xbox app and sign in
    2. Click the gear icon (Settings) on the left side of the application
    3. Select Network
    Hi, thanks for the response, my NAT is open. I am currently downloading the latest windows update so well see how that goes.
