    Xbox Game Bar recording: Microphone turning off


    I had this issues for so many time I gave up.

    But now I want to know why it isn't workin. Here's the problem.

    Everytime I start recording using the xbox game bar, my microphone turns itself off for no reason. So if I want to hear myself, I need to enable it manually, even if it was ON before I start recording. This is the same when I record the last 30sec. But this time my mic just didn't record at all.

    This is a very frustrating issue that I tried countless time to fix. I had the same on my previous PC.

    Everything is enable in my Privacy setting, my mic is working perfectly fine. It just for some unknow reason, Xbox Game Bar don't want to record me.

    Help...

    :)

    Games and microphone reccording problem

    Hi Iman976,

    Since this is happening with games bought and used from different platforms, there may be a PC setting that is causing this to happen. There's a possible setting where you have to turn on the microphone to record voice in your videos.

    Go ahead and follow this guide to set up your headset microphone or any other microphone you use:

    On the Game bar, go ahead and toggle the microphone mute button on and off when recording a video to test it out.

    Let us know if that helps!

    Game Bar Does Not Record my voice during party chat

    Hi Mbathula,

    Thanks for coming to the forums with your question. With recording your voice it will not do this through the game bar itself. You either have to do it through the Xbox companion app or have a capture card. As this guide for

    setting up streaming windows 10
    shows it will only record from the Microphone on the PC not the headset.

    Recorded audio

    Record game play with or without sounds from your game and your microphone, and choose the audio quality.

    • To record game sounds with your game clips, turn on Record audio when I record a game.
    • To choose a different audio quality than the default, select the Audio quality box and choose one of the options.
    • To record through your microphone, turn on Record audio when I record a game.
    Thanks,

    Brad

    Thanks Brad. I went to the Companion app and it redirects me to the Windows 10 settings that you outlined above. Based on this, looks like the microphone has to be connected to the PC to record my own voice. Is there a way I can request this as a feature?
