    PC mic does not work with Xbox remote play


    Hello, thanks in advance for any assistance.

    I've been playing Xbox almost exclusively from my PC for over a year now, mostly Call of Duty (which relies heavily on voice comms).

    More recently, I cannot get the mic (pc mic not xbox headset) to work at all while using Remote Play. I can use my PC Mic setup fine with any of my pc apps, games, even the same Call of Duty but pc version.

    But - the mic does not work with Remote Play.

    Specifically, in Call of Duty, turning the mic on has no effect. (In Call of Duty when your mic is turned on you'll see your name pop up if noise is detected).

    I have tried:

    Looking for mic drivers

    Restarting PC - works very occasionally, one time, then never again

    Power cycling the scarlet solo unit

    Plugging/unplugging the scarlet solo usb cable from the pc

    Plugging/unplugging the mic from the scarlet solo input

    Restarting xbox app, cycling remote play

    Again to clarify - the mic will be working fine in all other applications on my pc during the times that it is NOT working via the box app. In other words, I can be recording myself in OBS, but no one on my team can hear me (scream).

    Has anyone else had trouble like this?

    Setup:

    • Xbox Series X
    • Win10 PC with Xbox app using remote play (local home network)
    • Focusrite Scarlet Solo mic input
    • Audio-Technica AT2035 mic

    :)

    PC mic does not work with Xbox remote play

    Hello awful waffle,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    We understand you are having issues with your Mic during Remote Play. Let's work on this together and sort this out in timely manner for you to get back to gaming.

    There are a few possible causes for this issue, such as:



    - Your PC mic is not set as the default input device in your Windows settings.

    - Your PC mic is muted or has a low volume in your Xbox app settings.

    - Your PC mic is not compatible with Remote Play or the game you are playing.

    - There is a network or software problem that prevents your PC mic from working properly.

    To troubleshoot this issue, please try the following steps:



    - Check your Windows settings and make sure that your PC mic is selected as the default input device. You can do this by right-clicking on the speaker icon in the taskbar, selecting Sounds, and then clicking on the Recording tab. You should see your PC mic listed there. If not, you may need to enable it or install the drivers for it. You can also test your PC mic by clicking on Properties and then on the Levels tab. You should see a green bar moving when you speak into your PC mic.

    - Check your Xbox app settings and make sure that your PC mic is not muted or has a low volume. You can do this by opening the Xbox app, clicking on the gear icon in the lower-left corner, and then clicking on Audio & video.

    You should see your PC mic listed under Microphone. Make sure that the slider is not set to zero or close to it.

    You can also test your PC mic by clicking on Test microphone and speaking into it. You should hear yourself through your speakers or headphones.

    - Check if your PC mic is compatible with Remote Play or the game you are playing. Some PC mics may not work well with Remote Play or certain games due to different audio formats or protocols. You can try using a different PC mic or a headset that connects directly to your Xbox controller via a 3.5mm jack. You can also check the game's settings and see if there are any options to adjust the audio input or output.

    - Try a different mic: If none of the above solutions work, try using a different mic to see if the issue is with your current mic or with the Xbox app.

    I hope these steps help you resolve your issue and enjoy Remote Play with your friends. If you need further assistance, please let us know and we will be happy to help you.



    Sincerely,

    Mic not working in the xbox app and in party chat while streaming

    What specifically doesn't work? The stream audio or the party audio?
    Was that not covered in the OPs post?

    "I'm unable to use the microphone on my Steelseries when coneected to my PC using a Remote Streaming session"

    "just not when joining a party during a stream."

    Seems to me that the OP is playing using the Remote Play function but the Microphone doesn't work when in a party chat whilst using the Remote Play. the Mic works fine when directly connected to the Xbox or used via the Xbox App

    PC to XSX Remote Play - console turns on, only see a black screen, disconnects 1 min later

    Then remote.play wont work

    Remote play ala xcloud is only available on gamepass ultimate

    Game.streaming.via.the xbox companion app requires a xbox

    Keep in mind you can't.use.the.xbox while you are.using.the wireless gamestreaming
    Huh? Remote Play is nothing to do with Xcloud or Game Pass. And if it won't work, then how can they get it working on their Android device? And they have an Xbox so that's not the issue.

    They are trying to Remote Play their Series X games from their Series X console to their PC via the Remote Play feature and using the Xbox App. This should work without an issue, as it does with their Android device. There is nothing on the Remote Play page to suggest Game Pass is needed

    Without much welcome the community.

    Hello jcleigh, just to make clear what this is about, are you trying to stream from Xbox to PC on the same network, are you trying to remotely play xbox through your mobile phone or are you trying to play Xcloud?
    The OP is trying to use Remote Play between their PC and their Series X using the PC Xbox App:

    "PC to XSX Remote Play"

    They have tried to use remote play with their Android Device and it worked fine
