Some audio source may be too sensitive to environment noise. Please go to app settings, select different MIC device as audio source and check which is the right one.
The sound is robotic. How to solve it?
This may be caused by different reasons. Here are some tips for your reference:
  • Use USB connection if possible. It's more robust than wireless connection. And its latency is lower.
  • Put WO Mic app into foreground. Android will always give high priority to foreground app to run.
  • Close other apps which may consume too much CPU. WO Mic needs enough CPU duty to do audio packet encoding and transmission.
