    Had my mic stop working on a restart.. simply went in to the settings and noticed that it had turned my mic input down to 0%. Best assumption I can make is it was due to having headset and mic muted on Discord when closing the application.

    @Ryan6700 could be possible. Shoot us an email at [email protected] and we'll get you sorted out.

    @Karma If your mic isn't working when you start Discord, does going into Voice > Advanced help at all?

    @Above Average yup, make sure to disable the bar permanently using the steps in the article.

    Im Using a Corsair Void wireless headset and the windows app is no longer picking up any voice input from my mic however when i switch to the web version everything works fine. why does it do this?

    @K o 0 K try this it worked for me, under audio playback devices, go to the void headset properties and advance tab and uncheck "allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" appy and close, go to your settings in discord, and advance and reset to defaults and try again with setting the head set as input and output.

    @K o 0 K @ Kagekitsune this is a good recommendation. At the moment, Discord doesn't play very well with Corsair's CUE software. Bypassing it using kagekitsune's method is a good way to do so.

    also make sure u go to ur profile settings. Then voice. and change the output.the reason why i say this is because it helped me.
    What the output do (yes im bad at spelling) is it calculates how much sound is going to the mic,then plays it.
    Or you can do push to talk

    Not sure if anyone noticed, but for some reason after the update my input volume was at 0. Increased and that resolved the issue.

    Im not sure why this happens but I got a bug and this is that i need to initiate a call on skype to talk on discord, what i mean is if i'm using skype discord will detect my mic and i can talk normally but if I hang up the call discord will not detect my mic so basically i need to have a call on Skype so discord will detect my mic.

    If you go directly to the AFK channel, the message will appear, mic still works and if you switch to another channel the message will disappear.

    If you have discord running and you haven't joined any voice chats, but you have muted your mic physically, such as a button on my Blue yeti. If you join a channel and unmute your mic...Essentially You no longer have a mic. Only thing that helps is restarting discord.

    latest update made my notification sounds only play through headset, there is no option to change it to my main speakers. is there a way to make notification sounds go back to my main speakers? i dont wear my headset all the time when im not voice chatting.

    It appears Discord is messing with the computer's ability to detect my mic. I tried everything above and none of it worked. Then I closed out of discord and checked my audio setting in Skype, which is working fine. When I start up Discord, my mic stops working completely. Skype won't detect it, nor my computer. When I disconnect it and reconnect it, I get an error message stating that the mic is an unknown device and cannot be installed. It's like Discord changes the mic's identity with something the computer can't identify and prevents it from working.

    After downloading Discord, I've been having audio problems in Both Discord AND my Skype. I'm majorally confused. I can't hear my friends, or my friends could barely hear me. I don't know whats going on :/
