Allow Wire microphone access

  • Updated

Wire will ask for permission to access your microphone the first time you want to start a call on your desktop.

On Windows, macOS, or Linux

Only one application can access the camera at a time. If Wire cannot access the camera, check that no other application is using it. If another application uses your camera, close this application. If this does not help, please restart your device.

Please also check your Wire settings:

1. Select Preferences .

2. Select Audio / Video.

3. Select which microphone you are using.
