How to Use the Online Mic Test

This guide will show you how to use the online mic test tool to check if your microphone is working properly.

Step 1: Allow Microphone Access

  • Visit the online mic test website.
  • When prompted by your browser, click “Allow” to grant the website access to your microphone. This is usually a pop-up near the address bar at the top of your screen (on PC) or requires scrolling up (on mobile).
  • If your browser blocks pop-ups, you might not see the prompt to grant access to your speakers or microphone.

Step 2: Test Your Microphone

  • Click the button labeled “Test” or “Start test”

Step 3: Speak into the Microphone

  • Say a few words or make some noise into your microphone.

Step 4: Observe the Results

  • If your microphone is working correctly, you should see a line moving up and down in the test area as you speak.

Step 5: Stop the Test (Optional)

  • You can now press the “Stop” button to end the test manually. Otherwise, simply stop speaking into the microphone.


  • If you don’t see the line moving, try speaking louder or refreshing the page.
  • Make sure your microphone is not muted and the volume is turned up in your device settings.
