I can't hear through my headset when I use Teams/Zoom/Bria

Ensure there isn't another application taking control of the headset. This can also include other web applications that require audio like Microsoft Teams, You Tube.

Step 1: Click on the Start button, type in Sound, select the option Sound or Change my system sounds

On the Playback tab, select the correct headset

Step 2: Click on the Properties button

Step 3: Click on the Advanced tab

Step 4: Remove the tick from "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device"

Additionally, click on the Communications tab, select Do Nothing

Step 5: Click on the OK button
