I’ve gotten into this issue. During a call, my microphone did work.

Here’s how I have fixed it:

Step 1: Check your Settings

Step 3: Check your device itself

You can unplug your device and plug it to your other computer to check if it’s working.

Step 4: Volume Up

If you are able to record but unable to hear yourself. You might have forgotten to get that volume adjusted. Go to your system tray and adjust the volume. If your device has a volume button up, you can adjust it from there.
