Microphone not working in Google chat/G Voice. Why is this ignored by the folks at Google? It's a bug. Mdarr 7/2/12 3:16 PM
Like everyone else here my mic does not work and  as always mic works with all other apps
Chrome browser 20.0.1132.47 m
Windows 7 Service pack 1
What is the fix?
Some gives an fix with the registry but the particular entry mentioned does not exist after install.

Why does the 'troubleshooting' page simple give install instructions. The more I work with Google the more I think you don't know how to do real applications.
Everything is harder than it should be.

That's because Google applications are not "real" applications, they are web applications - makes everything harder.
Did you find these?

Upgrade your Audio Drivers per  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ypx-dpz1zSc

Are you using a USB microphone headset instead of the two-prong variety since many of the two-prongs do not provide full Duplexing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duplex_(telecommunications)#Full-duplex
 
I have my Microphone settings at https://mail.google.com/mail/?hl=en&shva=1#settings/chat set to my PC settings and PC Speakers set to Default. Does not matter if I use my PC mic/speakers or my USB headset http://shop.skype.com/headsets/usb/iss-talk-5115-everyman/
