When screen mirroring or live streaming using an Android phone, there may be occasions when there is no sound, or you and your teammate cannot hear each other. Here we provide the solutions to fix these issues.
Fix sound issues on Android screen mirroring
No sound while mirroring Android to PC
Android 10 and later phones can directly cast sound to PC. For devices with a system lower than Android 10, it can only stream the microphone audio. Please follow the steps below.
- Get an Aux cable to transmit sound.
- If you are using a desktop computer, plug one end of the Aux cable to the blue jack (line-in) in the back of your computer, and the other end to your Android phone.
- If you are using a laptop and there is only one jack for the headset and microphone, then you need an external sound card. Plug the sound card into the USB port on your laptop, and plug the Aux cable to the blue jack (line-in) and your phone.
- On your computer, right-click on the sound icon in your system tray and Open Volume Mixer.
- Click system sound, and switch to Recording, find the Line In option and select the external sound card device that you’ve just plugged in. Then right-click the Line In option and enable it.
- Afterward, right-click on the Line In option again, select Properties, and switch to the Listen option, check Listen to this device.
- Then your phone audio will be streamed to your PC along with your phone screen.
