Speakers Work / Headphones Don't 0 Recommended Answers 113 Replies 462 Upvotes

My computer settings are set up to output audio through my headphones, my Google Meet settings are set up to output to my system default, which is then headphones. I've tried different configurations of these settings (Default & Default, Default & Headphones, Headphones & Headphones). I've tried changing browsers (Safari & Chrome). No matter what I do, I cannot get Google Meet to play the audio from the meeting through the headphones I have plugged in. As far as I can tell, people can still hear me when they are plugged in, but I cannot hear them. I also know that when I unplug my headphones I can hear them and they can hear me. I'm very confused by this issue. I've restarted my computer, I've restarted my browser, I'm updated on all involved software. Please help, I'm at a loss.

Welcome to the Google Meet support community.
Are you using headphones or headset?
You might need to set your system to headset if that is the case.
And set your microphone to headset too.
Can you hear youtube videos with your headphones/headset plugged in?
Thanks,

I am having the same problem. I can hear youtube videos but not Google Meets. I have had had three Google Meet sessions where they have worked but six where thet have not. Go figure! Mine are wireless headphones with built in mic. I have tried to select them as the go-to device and Google Meet shows that they are selected. When they don't work in Google Meet I immediately switch to a youtube tab and they work.

I am having same problem, they can hear me but I cannot hear them. When I test mic and Audio in Google meeting testing page it works but then once I enter a live meeting or hangout nothing works.

Is there any fix to this. 

I have updated Chrome as well  but no fix.

This very annoying issue has been happening consistently to me for the past one or two months. Whenever I join a meeting in Google Meet, I can hear my colleagues through the laptop speakers. When I plug my headphones after I join the meeting, the audio still comes from the speakers. If I want to use the headphones then I have to close Chrome and open it again, then re-join the meeting. If I join the meeting with headphones plugged before joining, then they work fine, but if I unplug them and re-plug them, audio is now going through the speakers regardless of the fact I plugged in the headphones again. This only happens in Chrome and only for Meet. It doesn't happen in Firefox.
