I'm experiencing audio issues with the Ring.io Web Phone. Callers cannot hear me or I cannot hear the caller. What is the issue and how can this be resolved?

Answer: The Ring.io team has found that most audio issues stem from the audio device not being detected by the computer or the audio device has been blocked. Below are a few things you can check to get you back on track with dialing.


1. Restart your computer. The probability that a restart fixes the issue is about 98.3%, so try this first!

2. Unplug your USB headset and plug the device into a different USB port.

3. Verify and test your microphone and sound on your computer.

Which headsets do you recommend to use with Ring.io?

See Ring.io Headset Recommendations for Sales

Headsets Ring.io does not recommend

Headsets or headphones that have a 3.5mm connector. These may work for some time but we've found they just cause more issues and we don't want that for you or your team! Your day is probably tough as is; stick to a wired or wireless USB headset for a headache free day at the office, or at home for some of you.
