Step 1. In some of the cases you will not see a line while testing your microphone. In this case, speak relatively louder into the mic and see if the line appears.

Step 2. Refresh the page and try again. In most cases, it troubleshoots the problem.

Step 3. If you are not able to know if your mic works after following both the steps shown above, please check if your microphone is connected correctly to your device.
