Xbox One – How to Hear Voice through Your TV

Posted by Ivan on March 28, 2016

Xbox One and Playstation 4 have pretty much cornered the videogame console market, and they represent a whole new generation of games and entertainment. If you are reading this, then you are already familiar with all of the amazing wonders of Xbox One, and you need no further introduction to Microsoft’s excellent little device.

However, there is one thing that Xbox One lacks, something that is particularly annoying for each and every one of its users, and that is the option of hearing voice through TV speakers. Its predecessor, the Xbox 360, actually has that option, but those who started using Xbox One cannot enjoy the fantastic benefits of this feature. Or can they?

Until quite recently, the Kinect was the only way to hear voice through your TV speakers while playing on Xbox One, but that is not the case anymore. There is finally the solution to that, and it will immeasurably improve your gaming experience. Now you will finally be able to hear the other players both through your headphones and your TV, while using your Xbox One microphone.

The important thing to know is that you don’t need Kinect at all. What’s interesting is that the option of setting that up still doesn’t exist on Xbox One, but there is a way around it. This tutorial will provide you with all the steps you need to take to cheat your way to a better Xbox One experience. Read on to find out how.


Before you can set everything up, you need to have one more thing beside your basic equipment, and that is the second controller. With the use of one more controller, you will be able to set another account, which is crucial to the whole process. So, the equipment you will need is your main controller with your Xbox microphone and your second controller.


The first step you need to take is to make another account, beside your main one. After you have created another account, take the second controller and log into that account, then join the party where your friends are.


After that, take your main controller and log into your main account. Join the same party with your main account and, after you have done that, you will be able to hear the players’ voices through your TV speakers, as well as through your headphones, while chatting through your Xbox One microphone. It’s as simple as that.

If there is no one online at the moment you want to set everything up, don’t worry; you can still manage to do that by simply creating a new party and following the same steps as explained above.

Not only will you be able to hear all the other players clearly through your TV,  but anybody else who is in the room with you will now be able to hear the other part of the conversation. This is especially useful in case your headset isn’t working and prevents you from hearing anything.
There you have it – simply follow these steps and enter the extraordinary world of Xbox One full-mode experience. Enjoy!

I have stalker. He is an ex neighbor of mine who tends to find a way into my personal life. Believe it or not he actually makes a habit of annoying me while I watch football games and basketball games and so on and so forth. I am doing my research on smart televisions and I would like to know, is it possible to hear voices while I am watching a sporting game.
in other words, can someone talk and chant and annoy me while I am watching the lakers or watching a movie?
