  1. Xbox game bar - microphone quality is poor/choppy *FIX*


    I recently had the choppy microphone audio problem when recording 15 second game clips via Xbox game bar on my Windows 10 pc. I went into settings to boost the microphone quality to max, and even though I have an extremely nice microphone Shure SM7B it didn't help at all. luckily, this YouTube video solved my problem exactly, more than any thread I've seen on the Microsoft community website so far.link to video: https://youtu.be/v3BEJN-cd_wapparently you have to change a setting in the system config apphope this helps!

    Microphone not working with Xbox game bar

    My son is trying to record his playing on roblox using Xbox game bar. He is using a laptop on windows 10.

    It was working fine a few days ago. Now he is having problems with the microphone. When he brings up the xbox game bar, (windows G), the menu says that the microphone is not working because of privacy settings.

    When I go to the privacy settings for microphone, I gave permission to use the microphone for all the listed apps. But xbox game bar is not one of the listed apps. I also tried "reset" on the xbox game bar which did not help.

    How can I give permission to the xbox game bar to access the microphone?

    Microphone itself is working. I can use it on Cortana.

    Thanks

    Xbox Game Bar Capture Doesn't Record Mic Audio

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues while recording microphone audio using game bar while playing games.



    I would suggest you to try troubleshooting Game Bar and see if that helps. Refer the article

    Troubleshoot Xbox Game Bar on Windows 10




    In addition, you can also check if the Microphone for game bar is enabled under privacy settings.



    1. Go to Settings (press Windows +
      I key together) > Privacy.
    2. On the left hand pane scroll down and look for
      Microphone
      .
    3. Toggle Allow apps to access Microphone
      to ON.
    4. Under Choose which Microsoft Store app can access your Microphone toggle Xbox game bar to
      ON.
    5. Restart the game bar.


    If the issue persists, please get back to us with details of the troubleshooting steps to assist you further.
