Just got the quest 2 and want to play with a friend. We join party chat and we can both hear each other. When in game menus we can still chat but as soon as we launch into a game session my mic won't work. I can hear him but he can't hear me. Tried this over 3 games and same issue. Soon as I go home he can hear me again. Checked all settings and mic is active and enabled
I have found that allowing the game to use your microphone disables your mic in Oculus Party chat. Try pressing the Home button and going to Settings. On the left, select the Applications tab and find the app you are using in there. In the permissions, click Microphone and change it to denied. This unfortunately disables in-game voice chat but allows you to talk to your friends in your party without being disconnected. Hope this helps someone
So the only way to fix this problem is to drop out of the insiders program. I did that and it was completely fine afterwards. I know it really isn't the answer you were looking for but that's all I got for now.
