Hello there,

 

I have trouble with the microphone in all applications.

Last week it worked fine.

 

Every application recognize that the Device is plugged in but can't get the audio from it.

In the Windows 11 settings can you see that it gives through the audio. Even Teams can't catch any audio coming from the Mic.

The monitoring of Windows works fine as well..

 

I already tried a other device and reinstalling the drivers. The Windows Troubleshooting don't recognize any issue with the device.

I am also having the same issue only with USB headsets.  My bluetooth headset microphone seems to work fine.  As temporary mitigation, I ran into this post

Huge Thanks to @TheOneandOnlyPedro !

 

Went to Settings --> Apps --> Apps & Features  --> Cortana --> Advanced Options --> turned off Cortana

Restarted teams

The microphone now works with teams.

 

much appreciated,

mike
