Next-gen consoles like the Playstation 5 and Xbox X|S will now be able to bring their Apex experience into the future of gaming with HDR, shadow maps and greater detail removal.
But as players dive into Sabotaged Olympus, players are reporting an audio bug that is preventing players from hearing their chats.
In some cases, their overall game sound – specifically on Xbox X|S – was also affected.
When Apex Legends fans were ready to experience Respawn Entertainment’s next-gen update, Xbox gamers weren’t so excited.
When downloading the next-gen update, Xbox users were thrown for a loop when they realized their audio had changed or, in some cases, disappeared entirely.
So let’s see how to fix it…

“If you go into your console and set the audio output to studio uncompressed,” the Redditor explained on their forum. “The sound should be back to normal! Hope that helps!”
Dexterto’s own AlphaINTEL also reiterated the Redditor’s detailed instructions on Twitter and offered assistance in the form of a screenshot.
Players who had issues with their audio made the changes to their settings, and for most players, their audio issues went away.

Meanwhile, some community members fixed their in-game audio, but then the issue migrated to their chat audio, causing their headphones to stop working mid-game.
As the issue continues to gain traction in the community, perhaps we’re hoping that Respawn Entertainment will offer a patch that fixes the bug sooner rather than later.
