Push to talk PS4
« on: 07:58 PM - 01/28/19 »
I'm trying to use PS4 Push To Talk feature. I noticed it only works when. I'm in party chat or testing my mic in the menu, however for games like Overwatch or CoD Blackout it doesn't work unless in party chat. While OW has PTT, most games don't. If you test it, you won't see the icon light up in games that have in game chat.

Yes I've managed to connect a Blue Yeti USB mic to the PS4 Wired controller via 3.5mm and am getting both chat sound and and able input mic via 3.5mm so it should work. I tested with a modmic as well. No go still.

Are you having this issue with a standard headset without an adapter?

Also, APEX supports controller chat using v2 controller types. This type has a lightbar built into the touchpad. Are you using a v2 controller?

I am using the V2 PS4 Pro controller. I am either using a mic/headset splitter to input or a normal headset with a mic. Again it works 100% with party chat, however game chat doesn't seem to work at least in CoD or Overwatch.

Sorry I'm not sure why that would be. Could it possibly be due to a console or account settings that restrict game chat? There may be game settings that disable game chat as well. Hopefully other PS4 players can comment on this.

Normal game chat works fine unless using xim PTT feature.

Are you using APEX at 1000hz? If so please try the two options below.

1)
Open Manager
Edit the game config you intended to play
In the Identity section of your config enable Audio Compatibility Mode
Test

If this doesn't help then please try the next option.

2)
Open Manager
Go to menu-global settings
Set Response Rate to 125hz
Save
Disconnect and reconnect APEX to the console for the change to be active
Test

PTT is working for me in Overwatch's game chat on X1. I'm using the latest build in beta at the moment (0119) and the headset is attached directly to the controller without an adapter.

Is everyone holding the PTT button and can verify it's not set to toggle?

How about adapters, are these headsets attached directly to the controller or are they using a stereo adapter?
