Has anyone on this planet got this microphone to work?
I have confirmed it exists but still does not work in either SteamVR or the Games in the Oculus Library.

My setting in Oculus Software: (I have tried both methods.)


My Setting in SteamVR:


Windows Audio:


Testing of Microphone does nothing... the green level bar does not move or appear to be taking audio input.


Driver appears to be the latest... unless there is a newer one?

    I know when Link for Quest first became available the mic would not work.
    Perhaps that is still the case - have not been using mic of late with my Quest Link setup.
    If it is the case it would be nice if Oculus could update status on it.

    The microphone for Link is disabled in the 12.0 release of Quest software, according to the release notes. It will hopefully be functional in the next release.

    They’ve been typically doing one release per month. The PC version of release 13 has been in beta (PTC) for a couple weeks (since Jan 8), and will likely go to full release in the next week or two. The Quest version of release 13 will probably come out at the same time. There’s no guarantee that the mic will work in the next release, but we can hope.

    I don't understand how disabling a working feature helps development, but that's not my job.  Having a functioning microphone is necessary for many of my social apps and games.  Please give us our microphone's back Oculus!

    I have found that the mic does work if you use Virtual Desktop(v1.8.0) just not over Link. 
    So I just use Virtual Desktop when I need a mic; would be cool to have it over Link though.

    Agreed a working mic with Quest Link I would consider essential.

    @nalex66 You hear about any updates on this yet?
    The consensus is that it may or may not be fixed in the next update. lol not helpful.

    Nope, I have no inside info. They’ve been slower than normal on the PC version of the software, as they try to fix the issues that popped up in v12 for some Rift users. It sounds like they’ve got a handle on it, so hopefully v13 is almost ready for final release. They’ve been quiet on what will be in Quest’s v13, but hopefully it will include mic support for Link, along with other improvements (better syncing with the PC software is a big one I’m hoping for).
