Windows 10: Skype from Windows App store no sound and microphone

Post by DasMarx » Tue May 16, 2017 8:30 am

I downloaded the new skype for Windows 10 from the AppStore and can't select either my speakers or my microphone.
With the "older" Skype version i also had issues, that i could not hear notification sounds but at least the general calling would work.

Has anyone else noticed that strange behaviour or has tipps how to resolve the issues with Skype?

Issue is resolved after updating to Windows 10 Pro 15063.

I have to reword that. It sometimes works and sometimes does not. Not sure what causes it to fail.

I tested mine and the sound works.
Kinda curious about your setup
How do you split mic in ? Did you connect it directly to motherboard?

Mic is a USB device and sound is a dedicated sound card. However, on the newest Skype Version (11.19.856.0) on Windows 10, I can't select a device. The "older" (7.39.0.102) Skype Version works and i can select devices (mic / sound / camera)

Microsoft is rolling out the new version of Skype to everyone now, so the new version should show up for more and many should see the issue now. Anyone got an idea on how to handle the "no device found" in selection for speaker and microphone now?
I am still using the old Skype version but I've got the feeling that it will stop working any time soon.

I still haven't found a solution to this issue. The "newer" Skype version which is only distributed via Microsoft Store does not show any mic / sound / camera device while the old Version still works.
I'll keep using the older version but I fear at some day the support will be stopped and I can't use Skype anymore.

Web Skype still is an option but one I don't consider usable.
