Microsoft and Google are working together to fix YouTube’s audio issues for Chromium on Windows 10

Microsoft and Google work to bring Audio output improvements to chrome. This move by the company will not only improve the audio output from Google Chrome Web browsers, as well as any other browser that runs Chromium, including Windows’s native Edge browser.
The information was first reported from the Windows Latest website. According to their report, the Google and Microsoft audio enhancements for Chromium have been confirmed.
Several users have reported audio output issues while watching YouTube videos on Windows 10 using the Google Chrome browser. Another problem that users have reported while watching videos on Google Chrome is that they cannot turn the volume all the way up while watching them.
According to a report from the website, YouTube receives over hundreds of reports from users every day about audio problems playing videos on the desktop web.
According to the post, there are mainly three main reasons for this, according to Google. Here are the details as per the website.

  • User Error: A user can accidentally put YouTube in a muted state.
  • Operating system problems: An accidental device crash falls into this error category. For example, if the user has 2x DP / HDMI monitors with only 1 audio connection, the output device can switch between the two.
  • Driver problems: First-party or third-party drivers can cause audio to hang. Of course, Windows is the only consumer desktop operating system with ODM integration. Higher peripheral connection rates (HDMI Monitors with independent volume, USB Sound cards, etc.) creates additional opportunities for audio to fail. We suggest that YouTube and Microsoft work together on driver testing, troubleshooting, and investigating existing issues.

To address these issues, Google asked Microsoft and YouTube teams to work together on driver tests to identify potential audio-related issues.
In response, Microsoft has accepted the proposal and has already begun fixing the issues.
However, there are no words from either company as to when the update will be released. However, we can expect some results soon.
