Mic not working only in Anthem

★★★★ Novice

I have my push to talk set to "T" but when I press it nothing happens...I talk in the mic and there's no indication that m mic is registering.  However every other program like discord and blizzard chat is picking up my mic just fine...

What system are you running?


I often find that when I install a new game, Windows 10 (PC) will default Not Allow the new program to use the microphone.  I don't know why.


Go to Start , then select Settings > Privacy

Left Click on "Microphone"

Set Anthem to be allowed to use the microphone.


I don't know why this happens but it does.


I also open up the Sound Settings to ensure that my device is chosen...NOT the Default Sound.

Go to Start, then Settings > System

Left click on the "Sound"

Ensure that both the "Output devices" and the "Input device" are both set to your Headphones/Speakers & Microphone. (I use a headset so both are set to use it).

What if you are using windows 7? I’ve been using the mic fine since early launch! It just now started acting up. Thanks

What if Anthem or Origin aren't listed in the Privacy > Microphone settings list of applications? :'(
