If you want to list the best operating system, you must give Google Chrome the number one position. It includes everything. This operating system offers all the facilities which any could want.
But it also offers some problems. Sometimes Google Chrome might demand regular updates, and most importantly its might stop chrome sound not working correctly.
Sometimes we also hear that ‘chrome sound is not working on certain websites,’ and sometimes, they say the sound is not working at all. So now, at first, we will share why this problem may occur-
Chrome Sound Not Working Correctly
1) First make sure that your chrome is updated to its latest version. It will automatically download the required update if not done already.
2) Make sure that you are allowing all the permissions asked for while playing some videos or watching some clips online through your chrome browser as some times it asks for mic access which sometimes causes this error.
3. Check the Headphone Port
Sometimes headphone port becomes the issue. Often the port shows that the headphone is connected, but actually, it’s not. That’s why you feel like chrome sound is not working.
It is most probably the most known problem. Sometimes Chrome demands an update, or most often, something wrong happens in the central settings option of Chrome.
Once that happens, Chrome starts to create a problem, resulting in a sound issue. Though we will talk about this problem’s solution, we still thought its better to discuss that issue before.
These are known reasons behind this problem. Now we will try to make you know about the solutions.
1. Try Restarting Option
Whenever anything wrong occurs with the computer, what we suggest is to restart it. Why do we always suggest this? That’s because sometimes the computer fills with internal junk, and that can be removed through restarting.
2. What About Chrome Internal Sound Settings?
Here comes the most crucial option. You know that sometimes Chrome automatically sets up few settings. So this happens in terms of sound options also. That’s why we always suggest users check the built-in sound settings of Chrome and try to solve it.
3. Fix The Volume Mixer
After trying those two options, if nothing happened, something happened in the volume mixer. What should be your step? Click on the volume mixer tab and check everything. It may be automatically decided to ‘turn off the sound option.
4. Go to The Control Panel
In our last few solutions, we talked about chromes central settings. Now it’s time for the PC’s/Laptop’s sound setting. You have to go to the control panel and find out the ‘sound’ option. Once you click on that, you will see the speaker option. If it is turned on, then turn it on.
5. Scrutinize Windows Settings
As you are done with the control panel setting, it’s time to fix the windows setting. Click on windows setting and find out ‘sound settings.’
Once you find it out, then check that if it was automatically turned off. Or if the sound is low. If they are, they do the needful and turn it on or increase the volume level.
6. Remove the Cache File
Sometimes cache files fill up in a way that Chrome couldn’t work correctly. So for this thing, it’s essential to remove those cache regularly. For this, just open Chrome, go to the settings option and find out the ‘clear cache option. Then clear it.
7. Extensions May Be Causing This
For using other software, we sometimes enable the extension bar of Chrome. Yes, it’s fine unless it’s becoming a cause for a problem. SO check it out. If anything wrong is found, then disclose the extensions for a few software. It may solve the issue.
8. Update Windows
What if your chrome version is not matching with the windows version? Yes, this doesn’t happen always, but for some users, it’s a known problem. So without wasting time, update the windows of your
PC or Laptop.
9. Delete and Install Chrome Again
If you are updating windows, and still nothing is happening, delete the Chrome installed on your pc. Then install it once again. It may work for you.
10. Try Resetting
That’s the very last option we could suggest to all of you. Though it might sound ordinary, in some cases, it worked. So reset the Chrome’s sound and wait until you see the chrome sound is working.
If we tried all of these, then hopefully, you got your desired solution.
