How to turn off the PS4 camera mic?

6 replies 25317 views Edited Dec 19, 2013
Hello from Greece. Me and many more players we have an issue with some games, in multiplayer mode. PS4 camera mic its always on so in the game lobbies the only thing we hear it's a loud noise from the mic of all the players cameras. It is very bad, and me and other players we just unplugged the camera. So my point here is that because there is not an option to close the camera or the camera mic I believe that the most PS4 cameras will end in some boxes... It will be some update or fix to have an option to close the camera mic?

Currently there is no way to mute the mic on the camera, although I am sure this is something they will remedy in the future by making the Camera become a "device" much like the DualShock 4 and Headphones are today.

 

There are a few options today,

 

1) Unplug the camera when not using it. (Terrible work around)

 

2) Create a party chat where you are the only member while playing games.

 

3) Most games have a mute function so that you can Mute all players. This also mutes your microphone.

 

In the future, you will be able to hold the PS button, go to devices, select camera, and hit mute microphone.

 

Sony knows this is an issue, but unfortunetly there isnt enough time in a day to resolve all the current issues with the firmware overnight.

Another option, plug your headset into your controller. This will mute the camera mic. Then set the mic switch to mute on your headset.

Plugging the headset into the controller doesn't work, the mic on the camera is still on and running.
