    Xbox lowers game volume when Kinect is used for chat.


    Is there any way to disable the function that makes the kinect change my game volume? I have it set to the volume I like it, but I swap between headset and kinect often and have to reset my volume every time I do so.

    :)

    Sound gets lounder with mic plugged in?

    That's normal behavior of the volume. Because if you are in a party and unplug your mic it usually switches to Kinect to be used for chatting and so it lowers the game volume (not the overall volume!) to better get your voice and better understanding of
    the chat.

    This can be avoided if you choose not to use Kinect für chat in the Kinect settings.

  3. Party chat lowers game volume.

    Please add a a feauture that will fix this. When I play titanfall I cannot use Kinect for game chat so I go to a friend's party. This helps me to chat but it lowers dramatically the game volume and I cannot enjoy the game.

    The sound is too low!

    How do I check if my mic is working in BF4?

    Just set voice chat to play through the speakers, lower the master volume on games and switch the kinect VOIP on.

    XB1 best headset?

    Ah yeah that took me a few days to figure out too haha.

    So when you first turn on the headset, it's at a 50/50 mix of game and chat volume. Press the Controller with the plus symbol to raise the Game Volume and lower the Chat Volume. Press the little Person with a Plus symbol to do the opposite, raising the Chat
    and lowering the Game Volume. Holding the Chat or Game button will bring it all the way to whatever side you're holding down. (I hold the Chat Volume to max out the Chat, then press the Game button twice. That seems to be my preferred setup.)

    When you find a comfortable mix of volume, use the Plus and Minus buttons on the right to raise/lower the Master Volume to where you want.

    Anything else, let me know! I'll try and help out. =]

    new update

    so will the option of being able to tune audio volume when using Kinect for chat will that still work for if your not using Kinect and using the headset in party chat? cause right now I'll go to party chat but cannot tune what volume the xbox feels like
    turning the volume down to and to me the xbox turns the volume down way too much for me.

    Hi, it doesn't help. I want the game volume to lower when someone speaks. This works in party chat and not in game chat. Why?
