Hello Community! Have had this very frustrating issue with Skype for quite sometime now. Whenever I take a call no other sounds in the background will come through.
Things I have already attempted:
-Control Panel -> Sounds ->Headphones Properties -> Unchecked "Allow application to take exclusive control of this device"
-Sounds -> Communication Tab -> "Do Nothing"
-I've tried cycling through all different available speaker options in Skype
-Tested Ringing and I can hear while on a call
-Tested Speaker through Control Panel and sound plays while on call
-I have unchecked "Automatically adjust speaker settings"
-Have messed with settings in Beats Audio nothing seems to change, again can test headphones in this application and get sound same as testing in Skype and Control Panel but this is the only other sound I can get to play while on a call.
I'm sure there's more that I've tried over the months but these are the ones that come to mind, I've never had a problem with the audio on a call just that no other audio will come through other than the person speaking, cannot game, cannot watch a youtube video while on call etc.
Any ideas would be nice, thanks for your time
