'Fortnite' Voice Chat Not Working: What to Do?
5. Leave The Party
Sometimes "Fortnite" has a glitch when adding members to your party and not recording them in the group chat. Try leaving your party and joining back. If this does not work, try leaving the party again.
Go to Settings and Audio Settings. Under Audio, turn off your Voice Chat. Join your party, and then leave. Open the Settings and Audio Settings. Turn on your Voice Chat. Joining back in the party should now fix the problem.
Epic Games also offered a different suggestion if the method above does not work.
4. Check the Community Issues and Epic Games Server Status
Epic Games constantly updates its status through its public channels. Their Trello board lists out the latest reported issues and information related to them. Their Epic Games Server Status lists out all their systems with an indicator to make sure it is currently operational.
3. Turn Up Voice Chat Volume
Sometimes, the Voice Chat might not seem to work because the volume is turned down by default. Open your Settings and search for the Volume tab. Make sure that the volume is turned up to 50 percent or higher.
2. 'Fortnite' Voice Chat Channels
Check if you are in the correct chat channel that connects you with your teammates. "Fortnite" has two channels in-game: Party Channel that connects you with the same party, and Game channel that connects you on one team but different parties. You can switch between chats by using the Social Menu.
1. Adjust Parental Control Settings
If your account has parental controls, it might block the "Fortnite" voice chat by default. Open the Custom Settings and make sure to set the Filter Mature Language "OFF." Also, turn the Voice Chat "ON."
One of these solutions should definitely help in fixing the voice chat issue. If the problem continues, you might have to consider changing hardware. The voice chat issue might be caused by a damaged microphone or headset.
