    Mic Broken?


    If I join an xbox live party it will use the kinect sensor for voice instead of the mic, even when the mic is plugged in. I tried using my mic at a friends house and it worked. But it won't at my house. So is it my xbox one?

    :)

    Can't hear players in game chat

    Try replugging in the mic. Just to make sure the mic is functioning properly. Also try the mic connected to a different controller.

    Trolls on the mic

    Whenever I get tired of the trolls I just turned the chatter off. You have to see this as a strategy on their part. Generally speaking the more upset you become the more likely you are to loose focus on playing the actual game. I have pretty thick skin and am laid back I generally do not have any issues tuning these people out. They are pretty funny some time. Just one fo those things you have to deal with when playing multiplayer.

    Mic Broken?

    Have you tried turning off the mic for the kinect? Not sure if the console and the mic are competing with each other but one way to find out is turn off the mic on the kinect

    Start button > Settings > Kinect

    Hi Kyle!

    From your home screen, press the menu button and select "settings" then go to "kinect" then all you need to do is uncheck the box that says "Use Kinect microphone for chat" and it should then use the mic instead.

    Hope this helps!

    I have unchecked the box that says "Use Kinect Microphone for Chat." I did that already, sorry for not mentioning. It will still play through the kinect and tv. However, when I make a skype call, the mic works perfectly fine. It just won't work for parties.

    When you try and use the mic for party chat does the mute switch light up when pressed?

    Mic Broken?

    All buttons work. It can mute, it beeps after full volume, just never has voice audio. It becomes a problem when playing battlefield 4. I want to use voice commands but not let the whole lobby hear my family.

    Go to settings>kinect and turn kinect off. Then try party chat with someone and see if it uses the mic or not, It would be interesting to see if it works then.

    I think this is happening to me. I found a fix for it. Question, do you turn your Xbox one on with voice?

    Me, whenever I turn my xbox one on with voice and then turn my controller on to start or join a party, my mic/headset does not work. However when I turn the xbox on with the controller and then start or join a party, my mic/headset works.

    Yes my kinetic chat is turned off..

    Mic or No Mic

    ^^ In Zombies more than MP, with the maps being as big as they are - having comms is important if a lobby is going to do well. We all know that all players being in the same area means the undead can overrun the players easily... so the right tactic is to
    separate and train in different areas. But if someone goes down, when on comms, you can know where they are without having to just head in the general direction and you can plan you route(s) in advance.

    Some players prefer to play with those that are team spirited and most of my FL that play Zombies are that way inclined. If players prefer the lobby to be on comms, and you dont want to be, find another lobby - where is the stress???

    .

    Plus if players are mic'd up - they are less likely to just quit out when they go down. I hate when we get to wave 10 or something and a player leaves, whats the point - work as a team, help them survive, escort them and support them until they have perked
    and weaponed up... far more interesting and fun game...

    .

    I play a lot of Zombies and I will mic up when a lobby is all mic'd up but often when I play its full of kids so I wont mic up.

    I dont use a mic. I hate the majority of people's voices on this game and the opinions aren't the best either.
