How do I set up or update my audio settings?

Headphones

You can use headphones or your computer speakers in Katmai. Wired headphones are ideal because they allow you to experience the full range of spatial audio. What’s spatial audio? If there’s a coworker speaking on your left, you will hear them more prominently through your left headphone, mimicking real life. As you move away from that co-worker, they will gradually become more difficult to hear.  

**Note for Bluetooth users: We recommend that you connect your Bluetooth headphones BEFORE entering Katmai as changing Bluetooth settings in game can cause audio errors. Most Bluetooth headphones cannot experience spatial audio.

Speakers

While spatial audio is not as appreciable when using speakers, you can absolutely use them. They transmit sound effectively and don’t mess up your hair. 

**Note: If you’re experiencing echoes, check your Katmai audio settings by clicking the Settings icon  on your self-view (upper right corner). Make sure the toggle next to Audio Out is toggled to the type of audio you’re using.

Inputs and outputs

If your computer has multiple audio input options, they will be available for selection in the Audio In dropdown menu that appears when you click the Settings icon in the upper right corner of the screen.

If your computer has multiple audio output options, they will be available for selection in the Audio Out dropdown menu that appears when you click the Settings icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
