No sound in Google Hangouts? Read below.

Certain sound drivers add enhancements to your microphone properties causing it to stop working in Google Hangouts. If you can hear others but they are unable to her you. Or if you sound quiet and muffled to your callers – this is the case.

To resolve this, all that needs to be done is to disable mic enhancements, assuming that you have configured your Hangouts to use correct input and output audio devices. So lets get on with it.

On Windows system go to Control Panel, then Sound. Click on Recording tab, highlight your microphone and click Properties, and Advanced tab. You should see something like this:
