Solutions to Fix Fortnite Voice Chat on Xbox

If you want to fix your voice chat on Xbox, you’re going to want to check your audio settings in the voice chat section of Fortnite and Xbox. It’s pretty simple to do this, but first, you’re going to want to open up your Fortnite game and head for the Voice Chat tab in settings. Once you’re there, make sure Voice Chat and Voice Chat Notification are turned on, set to open mic, and the voice channel set to party.

Start your party and head back into Fortnite. At this point, you’re going to want to turn off your voice chat and apply to accept the changes. Leave your party and turn on voice chat again in the Fortnite audio settings. This should help fix your Fortnite voice chat on Xbox.
