How To Give Access To Microphone On Discord | Give Permission

You can communicate with your friends or stream with your community on Discord. In addition to chat and messages, you can use voice chat in Discord. But you need to give some additional access to do so.

And in this post, we will talk about how you can give your microphone access to Discord to have voice chat with your community.

Auto access to the microphone on Discord

If you are using the Discord app and you try to enter a voice channel, a prompt will pop up that will request you to grant access to your microphone. Just by a single click, you grant the microphone access to Discord. But, due to any reason, it doesn’t work. Here’s how you can give microphone access manually.

Give microphone access in the Discord app

  • Open your Discord app
  • Go to the setting menu by clicking on your profile icon
  • Click on the “Voice and Video” option
  • Select “Input Device”

  • Now select the microphone that you are using.
  • You can also adjust other settings like volume, sensitivity, etc
  • Once selected, the microphone will be the default for your Discord server.

Access microphone in Discord web

You can do the same steps mentioned above in the browser too. But if you have denied the microphone permission directly to the browser, you must do some extra steps to access the microphone. We are using Google Chrome to explain.

  • Open your browser; no need to open Discord for now.
  • Click on the menu option; three stack dots on the top right side of the browser.
  • A new menu will open up
  • Click on the “Privacy and Security” option.
  • Click on “Site settings.”

  • Find and select “Microphone” under the “Permissions” tab.
  • Now if you have disallowed Discord to access the microphone, you will see Discord in the “not allowed to use microphone” list; just click on the trash icon given there, it will remove Discord from that list
  • Now open Discord, and when it asks for microphone access, allow it to access.

That is it for this post. Now you know how you can grant microphone access to Discord.
