Someone's Voice is Cutting In and Out

Someone's Voice is Cutting In and Out

If someone's voice is cutting in and out they may have their microphone sensitivity set too high.

Ask them to open the cog menu in the upper right corner and open the Mic Settings Menu




Moving the Microphone Sensitivity slider to the right will increase the Microphone Sensitivity and will allow more voice through the system.




Moving the slider to the left will decrease the Microphone Sensitivity which reduces background noise and other non-voice sounds from being transmitted.
