A detailed guide on how to set up a microphone in multiplayer choir with all sorts of Phasmophobia ghost types.

Phasmophobia is a cooperative horror game in which players take on the role of ghost seekers. One of the interesting mechanics in the game is that cooperative members can communicate with each other via radio, as well as try to summon spirits and ghosts with voice commands through the microphone. At the moment, this feature works with interruptions, and many users can not properly configure their microphone. Especially for such players we have prepared this guide.

No matter how trivial this sounds, the first thing you need to do is to make sure that your microphone is connected to your PC and installed as the default device. You can do this by right-clicking on the speaker icon at the bottom right corner of the screen, then selecting “Open Sound Options”.
