6. On your microphone settings page (chrome://settings/content/microphone), check that your microphone is selected in the first drop-down menu. “Default” is typically the microphone you’ll want selected.
Note: If the microphone is set to default and people you are calling can't hear you, set it to the specific microphone you are using.

Further troubleshooting

If you're using Chrome on a work/corporate computer, it’s possible that your network administrator controls your microphone settings. In that case, you can't change them here. 
To check if your Chrome browser is managed by an administrator: 
1. Copy/paste this link into the URL bar in your Chrome browser:  chrome://policy/
2. If you see a list of Chrome policies, your browser is managed. If you see "No policies set," your browser is not managed.
If your browser is managed, you’ll need your administrator to grant FUB access/permissions to your Chrome microphone.
