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?

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?

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..
