Possible problems

Possible problems in the messenger arise mainly because the microphone does not work. Consider the causes of this situation:

  • Malfunction of the device. To check the problem, the microphone is connected to another computer. If the malfunction is confirmed, you should simply replace the microphone.
  • Added microphone volume in the audio settings. It happens that the user himself did not intentionally disable the device. In such a case, the speaker icon in the panel in the lower left corner is crossed out. This feature is specially built into the application in case other people approach the person.
  • Driver problems. You can check if there is a problem in the Device Manager. The system will show the user a message about problems with the device if there are missing or outdated drivers for the peripherals on the computer.

Communicating via the messenger Discord is quite simple. The application supports both text and voice communication. To join the Voices Channel, a person would have to buy a microphone.
