Players must use a headset microphone. We don’t allow standard desktop microphones or embedded microphones (like in laptops) because they pick up feedback from sources other than the user.

* If you’re only listening as a viewer, with no intention of playing or speaking, you don’t need a headset microphone.

Game Show Online does not provide technical support for hardware. If you need help with setting up a headset microphone, consult the instruction manual.
