    Messenger error message "You'll need to allow microphone for calls. Allow Microphone Access"


    Hello everyone,


    since one of the past updates last quarter of the year 2019, I could no longer do video calls thru messenger. My built-in speaker and microphone Laptop HP 15 -bs111ng suddenly is no longer "found" by the system. I have been using a headphone with built in microphone SMKP 1 A1 - connected thru bluetooth. The audio works just fine; I can watch and listen to videos or songs both online Netflix, YouTube et.al or from the saved videos in my Harddisc or other memory gadgets such as USB sticks. However, even though the system settings confirm that my microphone is set properly the one built in on the headset that I currently use, whenever I try to start a call thru FB messenger, I get an error message stating :



    "You'll need to allow microphone for calls.
    Allow Microphone Access

    Access to Media Devices has been denied"


    What am I missing?


    My general settings for the camera and microphone is on. Is there a particular app that goes with messenger that I also have to give free access to my camera and microphone for it to work like skypes for instance? I do not see messenger in the list of apps requiring access to my microphone nor laptop camera that I can switch on or off.


    I'd appreciate your help on this issue.


    Thanks a lot and best regards,


    Joel

    :)

    How to allow IMO Messenger to use microphone in windows 10?

    I have installed IMO Messenger recently on Windows 10 Laptop. It can access Camera but can't access microphone to capture my voice. I have looked at Setting>>Privacy>>Microphone and found that there is no sign of IMO Messenger. Other apps (like Skype) can access the microphone quit well. How can I allow it to access my microphone? please help.

  3. Facebook messenger won't access camera or microphone

    When I try to video chat with someone on Facebook, I get that message.
    Code:
    An error occurred when tryin to get access to camera and/or microphone. Hardware access error. To make a call on Facebook, you need to turn on your camera and microphone on. It used to work fine. Now I have that error in all my browsers. And it's activated. Have verified privacy settings to allow both of them.
