My Microphone Isn’t Working In Phasmophobia

Finally, you’ve found an open room full of other players to play Phasmophobia with. As is customary, the party leader will ask to make sure everyone has a microphone. Some even label their lobbies “mics only.”

You press down “V” to confirm you have a microphone, but they ask again. You press it again to let them know you hear them, only for them to kick you out of the lobby. Did they not hear you, or are you having mic issues in Phasmophobia? Let’s take a look at some simple fixes to get you back on the mic and hunting ghosts.

Check The Hardware Side

It might be the obvious fix, but make sure your microphone is on. Some microphones have hard mute buttons or switches. Make sure you haven’t muted yourself on the microphone itself. If you are unmuted on the microphone, check your Windows settings to ensure you have the correct microphone selected. Laptops sometimes switch to their built-in microphones. If you want to use a USB microphone, you’ll have to make sure you have that one selected.

Here are the steps to take for VOIP issues in Phasmophobia:

  1. Launch Steam as Administrator.

    2. Try not to ALT+TAB in and out of the game, it tends to bug out voice chat & recognition, if you do ALT+TAB out of the game, click into the game rather than ALT+TABing back in.

    3. Verify integrity of game files (right-click on Phasmophobia in Steam -> Local Files tab -> Verify integrity of game files).

    4. Set the microphone you want to use as the Windows Default input device. A guide on doing this can be found below.

    5. Make sure no programs can prevent “Phasmophobia” from accessing the microphone. A guide on doing this can be found below.

    6. Ensure no Antivirus or Firewall softwares are blocking/catching “Phasmophobia”. (Disable them, or simply add “Phasmophobia” as an exception)

    7. Ensure your motherboard audio drivers are up to date.

    8. Uninstall the Nahimic+ software in your windows program list.

    9. Increase your input volume in Windows.
