I know this was previously fixed in 8.14.2, but this issue popped up again just today. Exactly like before, all other programs are working fine on the audio switcher, however Chrome will only output to the default audio device.

AMM 8.14.2
Windows 10 x64
Google Chrome Version 79.0.3945.79

Ryan,

The Audio Switcher feature doesn't work in the latest version of Chrome 79 because the Chrome audio service is sandboxed in the latest version for added security.

You can disable the audio sandbox using the AudioSandboxEnabled policy in the system registry. Download this .zip file, extract the .reg file from it and execute it in order to disable the audio sandbox for Chrome.

But please note that audio service is sandboxed for added security and disabling the sandbox leaves a user open to security risks related to running the audio subsystem unsandboxed. You disable it at your own risk, and you better do it if you're confident in your system's security, for example if you're running good anti-virus software.

Unfortunately, for now we don't see a way to make Audio Switcher work with the sandboxed audio service, and it seems that disabling of the sandbox is the only way to use the Audio Switcher in Chrome for the near future.


Best regards.
