When I use the in-home steam streaming feature, from my desktop PC to my laptop in the other room, in game voice chat does not work. I know it's not the steam client as I can use in game voice chat playing other games in the same manner (in home game streaming on steam) such as Elite Dangerous. I can use in game voice chat just fine if I use the same mic on my desktop only, or if I use it on my laptop only playing PUBG. It only happens when I am playing PUBG using in home game streaming.

Troubleshooting Attempted:

  1. I've verified that it is not steam by steam streaming other games and using their in game voice chat.
  2. I have tried various mics.
  3. I have tried using in game chat on both my Desktop and my laptop pc playing PUBG and it works fine on both if I just play it directly on those platforms.

The easiest way to get this information is to hold the windows button and R to open the run dialog, then type in "dxdiag"
and take a screenshot of the "System" and "Display 1" tabs.
