Recently, gamers are reporting a microphone issue in the game. Even though the microphone symbol is shown against the Name Bar, in the interface of the game, but sound transmission is failing.

Please note that the provided methods are not officially inscribed anywhere; however, they did work for a majority of the users. Try all of them to find out which one works for you.

PUBG Mobile Mic Not Working(Android/ iOS) [Fix]

Before you proceed with the methods, please take care of the basics first. Make sure your data connection or WiFi is fast and is working smoothly without interruptions. If your internet connection is slow, you are bound to face issues in PUBG. Make sure that you ain’t attending any call in between and no apps are running in the background. Once you have taken care of these things, let us have a look on the tips to fix PUBG Mobile voice chat and microphone not working issues.

1. Perform an update to the most recent version

A good number of PUBG Mobile users, on Android and iOS, were facing microphone issues as they weren’t playing an updated version of the game. If you are ignoring the small updates, there are high chances that you are facing voice chat and microphone issues because of that. Please update PUBG Mobile to the current version and check whether PUBG Mobile voice chat issue gets resolved.

2. Microphone Permissions

When installing the game, you must have come across the permissions screen. There are high chances that you denied microphone permission to the game at that point. Please navigate to App Info > Permissions > Microphone and toggle it ON if not ON earlier.


3. Microphone symbol present in Lobby

We guess there isn’t any need to tell you that when you form a team in PUBG, you can talk and you are standing in the lobby. If you are seeing that your team member’s microphone is blinking, but you aren’t able to listen anything; chances are that you haven’t turned on your microphone. There will be a microphone button present at the bottom right of the screen. If the button is not activated, it might be a server side issue. Try rotating your mobile device to 180 degrees to see if you could click on the microphone icon; otherwise, simply restart the game to get things going.


4. Lock/Unlock Mobile Device in Lobby

Under this fix, as a first, please turn on the microphone in the lobby. Next, simply lock and unlock your mobile device to fix voice chat and microphone issues in PUBG mobile.

5. Use PUBG Emulator for PC

This cannot be considered as a fix for mic issues in PUBG Mobile; but it is an alternative solution. Tencent provides an official PUBG Emulator to allow the gamers to play PUBG on their PC. Click here to download the official PUBG Emulator for PC.

Tencent usually sends out small updates for the games that gets installed with the initial installation of the game. It is an automatic process but no harm in doing it again. Simply tap on the ‘Repair’ button present at the game startup to fix installation issues, if any, with PUBG Mobile.


7. Start PUBG While in Call

  • Before you start the game, you need to make a call to your friend. Please stay on the call and launch your game till the main countdown. While in lobby, call your friends and ask them to join.

  8. Hey,
    I’ve had this issue for ever: use my Bluetooth headphones on my iPad to play, but mic is picking up from my device instead of from the headphone set.
    So yesterday I just thought to try something. Plug in a pair of wired headphones in the jack to test if the game will pick-up the right mic this way. It does.
    Go back to Bluetooth: miracle! The game went back to pick-up the headphone mic again!
    So might be something to try for people having audio or mic issues…

  9. I have been having an issue with my mic recently. In the past couple of months, and it was not changed with the last update or by reinstalling.
    My mic works but it gets progressively more muffled the longer I play until nobody can understand me. I use bluetooth headphones and always have, but this issue only started a couple months ago. I have tried multiple pairs and outside of the game they work perfectly. Recently it stopped working altogether mid game. I have tried most of these tips aside from emulator and using a phone call.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
