Voice both input and output (receiving people's voice and speaking to people) does not work in the following games : Fortnite, PUBG, Rainbow Six Siege and more. At first I thought it was just a bug with pubg and fortnite, but today when I played siege where voice worked previously, I knew something was wrong.
Since I played siege, I have reinstalled my os on an ssd but the broken voice on pubg and fortnite was from before. I am running windows 10 and have a linksys dual band router. I've tried most fixes for those games so I am guessing it's software related. Windows 10 is pretty much fresh. Oh and I also have hyperx cloud 2 headphones.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: I thank you all for your support and answers though this topic remains unsolved. I've gotten more help here than anywhere else or guides.
Things I've tried:
Turning off Discord (plus startup)
Moving game from one drive to other
Making sure audio device and mic are set as default + disabled all others
Making sure audio device is default in game
Updating headphone drivers
Forwarding ports (as per the rainbow six siege guide)
Reinstalling RealTek Audio driver from a random site
After much help from Vivox, I believe I fixed my problem. I can't do extensive testing now, but it does work for pubg.
I don't know what the problem is, but it was fixed by configuring my dns server addresses to googles addresses. This is what I did.
** "Change the DNS server addresses on your router to use the Google DNS servers located at 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206
Or you can change the DNS server addresses locally on a Windows 10 PC as part of a Network->Internet Protocal v4 property. "**
This seems to be the solution for me. Another thing people can try is to make sure to disabled SIP ALGI
EDIT: Came back to these forums after a long time and found that this thread has 30k views meaning a lot of you are having similar troubles. I made a steam guide back when I fixed my issue with ALL of the fixes I tried and listed them and how to do them. Check it out and see if any of it works for you, otherwise, good luck. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1278512154
