    I've set my browser settings to the above and I still receive the error message.

    I'm also still encountering this error in both Chrome and Firefox.

    Hey Ben,

    If the above steps didn't help then can you confirm that your browsers are up to date? I'd also recommend clearing your browsers Cache/Cookies to see if that resolves the issue.

    It may also be worth testing from a Chrome Incognito window to see if there's maybe a browser extension that's interfering here.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Brett, 

    I have the same issue. As suggested, I've tried clearing my Cache/Cookies and the issue still persists. Even when I've enabled my sound, but my mic is still not working and I'm unable to hear anything when I take calls. 

    However, opening in Chrome Incognito does work. I've checked my browser extensions and know that nothing is interfering. Any other advice?

    Hey Jason,

    If it's working in an Incognito window would you be able to try uninstalling Chrome and re-installing to see if that resolves the issue for you?

    Hey Brett, 

    Just tried as directed, and still no luck. So for me, it works in Incognito and also on Station (https://getstation.com/). I just found out that my coworker is experiencing the same issue as well.

    Hello, one of our agents experienced the same issue. We cleared her cookies, switched to incognito, allowed audio then switch to Firefox and she would still her the error mentioned above. This only happened to one user. It eventually fixed itself after 20 minutes. This is the second time it happens to her. I'm very curious to know what's causing this.  Thanks!

    Hi Mia,

    That's definitely odd behavior but I'm glad to hear things are up and running again. Have things been stable for this agent since you last reported this?

    Hello JSR,

    I followed up on the ticket that was created and unfortunately we never heard back from the poster so weren't able to work with them on troubleshooting. But, the recommendations the Advocate provided in their initial email may be helpful to others as well so I thought it might be helpful to share those here for you to review:

    To start, I would like to check that you've tried initial troubleshooting steps:

    It looks like your browser is trying to prevent unwanted ad playing sound in the browser which has been affecting customers. If you set both your microphone and sound to allow rather than Allow (default) this should stop this from happening.

    I hope that helps!

    Hello Zendesk / Community

    We experience this issue now as well and we have tried all the suggested solutions in this conversation, but none of them seems to help. 

     

    Is there anything new about the issue?
