Chrome Extension - microphone issues, Loom is recording without audio

If you're experiencing issues with the Loom Extension not capturing your microphone audio when recording with the Loom Chrome Extension, please follow the below troubleshooting steps. ๐Ÿ”จ

Issue symptoms:

  • Recording made via the Loom Chrome Extension does not have sound despite your microphone being selected and enabled. 
  • Under microphone source, your mics are labeled: 'Microphone 1' 'Microphone 2' 'Microphone 3',

Here's what to do:

  1. Open your Chrome microphone settings (chrome://settings/content/microphone) from the Chrome browser and enable your setting as per below:

    1) Choose a default mic.
    2) Toggle 'Ask before accessing' to blocked.
    3) Clear the list of websites under 'Allow' by clicking the trash icon next to each website. 
    Then exit this page. 


  2. Restart your Chrome browser, then re-open Chrome microphone settings (chrome://settings/content/microphone) and toggle back on 'Ask before accessing', as shown below. 


  3. Open your Loom library, then launch the Loom extension by clicking the Loom icon in your address bar. You should now see a pop-up asking if Loom can 'Use your microphone'. Click 'Allow' as per below, then exit the Loom extension. 


  4. Re-launch your Loom extension, select 'show advanced option' to expand and click the drop-down to choose your microphone source. This should now display with your microphone names correctly. 


  5. Select your preferred microphone and hit Start Recording. 


You should now be able to record successfully.

If this does not work, we'd suggest trying to record with the Loom Desktop App.
