So I used to own shadow but I stopped my subscription back then and at that time the shadow microphone worked without no problems but now. I rebought shadow last year and the microphone hasn’t worked at all.

First, make sure you have the microphone enabled in shadow’s settings. If that doesn’t work, go to sound settings in shadow and troubleshoot your microphone. My mic wasn’t working yesterday and that fixed it.

But if you are streaming with a Nvidia Shield you can't open the microphone settings with (Windows + ALT + O) or by using the Shadow control panel. It don't work. Any idea's to let work the microphone?
