How to Use the Oculus Quest Microphone

Your Quest has a built-in microphone for in-game communication

This article explains how to use the Oculus Quest microphone, including instructions on what to do if your Quest microphone isn’t working. Instructions are for both Oculus Quest and Quest 2.

How does the Oculus Quest microphone work?

Every Oculus Quest and Oculus Quest 2 device includes an array of built-in microphones as well as built-in speakers. These headphones are completely self-contained units that you can use without a computer or any other extra gear or accessories, so there’s a microphone array on the bottom near your mouth. The microphone array should pick up and transmit your voice when you participate in a voice chat, unless you mute it.

Oculus Quest voice chat has two different levels. Quest and Quest 2 include system-wide party chat that lets you chat with your friends whether you’re in a game or not. Additionally, app and game developers can leverage system-wide party chat, offer their own in-game voice chat solutions, or support both. If people can’t hear you or you can’t hear them, it’s usually due to an issue with in-game voice chat or system-wide party chat.

Additionally, issues may arise when connecting a Quest to a PC with a patch cable. Any microphone connected or built into your computer can replace your Oculus Quest microphone, and the same goes for built-in or connected speakers or headphones. Therefore, when using the connection cable, you must check your computer and set the audio input to use your Quest microphone.
