Bug: Microphone disabled in Edge

I have an app where users can record and playback audio using controls. When the app launches in a browser, the app asks if you want to allow Microphone input like usual. Both Chrome and Edge ask that, and I click okay.

 

In Chrome, I am able to record; and if I want to switch microphone input source, I can do so with the button in the address bar in Chrome.

 

In Edge, even when I click okay to allow the Microphone at the start, my Microphone control is still disabled. Sadly, I think this is a limitation of Edge. I am not able to find any settings in Edge that allow or disable audio. Can someone help me?

My users only use Chrome, so it's not too big a deal, but if the app's microphone doesn't work for Edge, it also doesn't work for my Windows Phone via the app either.

Re: Bug: Microphone disabled in Edge

Hey mr-dang 

 

Thanks for reporting the bug 

 

Yes, Microphone does not work on Edge now, there should be a warning banner showed on the top of your browser when you have a microphone control in your app.

 

We have recently made microphone work on Windows phone. You are expected to see it working in our release on March 3rd.

 

Thanks

Re: Bug: Microphone disabled in Edge

I ran some more tests. It seems to be a limitation of the browser. 

 

Original results

  • Win 10 + Chrome + regular tab: works
  • Win 10 + Chrome + incognito tab: works
  • Win 10 + Edge + regular tab: disabled
  • Win 10 + Edge + InPrivate tab: disabled

 

New tests

  • Teacher Chromebook + ChromeOS + Chrome + regular tab: works
  • Teacher Chromebook + ChromeOS + Chrome + incognito tab: works
  • Student Chromebook + ChromeOS + Chrome + regular tab + staff WiFi: disabled
  • Student Chromebook + ChromeOS + Chrome + incognito tab + staff WiFi: disabled
  • Student Chromebook + ChromeOS + Chrome + regular tab + student WiFi: disabled
  • Student Chromebook + ChromeOS + Chrome + incognito tab + student WiFi: disabled

 

My teacher Chromebook was re-imaged to a newer version of ChromeOS, but the student Chromebook is on an older one for capability issues.

Re: Bug: Microphone disabled in Edge

I tested if my problem was that the browser was selecting the wrong microphone input. So I put in two buttons to cycle through different microphone numbers [0, 1, 2, 3, etc.]. This is the same idea as swapping camera input for a camera control. It was worth a shot.

 

  • Chrome: still works. Cycling through microphone inputs does not seem to work though. When I increase or decrease it from 0, the browser still records from the default. I think this is because Chrome overrides that control in PowerApps.
  • Edge: The microphone icon does not appear as disabled. I can click the record button and it will change to a Stop button. However, it is not recording even when cycling through microphone inputs.

I can confirm that the microphone works in Windows 10 Mobile. Thank you.

 

Is there an update on getting the microphone working in Edge? I can confirm that the microphone is not working in Edge and no banner had popped up.

 

Chrome is working okay, but I will be posting an idea on this forum to create a way to disable the microphone when not in use, since there is not a way to disable it like you can the camera at this time.

I second this. Microphone input doesn't work.

 

Even something like the Bing Speech API doesn't work, which can be tested here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/cognitive-services/speech/

 

Works fine in Chrome and Firefox.
