How to choose between different audio devices on BlueStacks 5

How will this help?

You can select your preferred speaker (audio output) and microphone (audio input) devices on BlueStacks 5.2 and above. The ability to select between different audio devices is extremely beneficial during scenarios such as playing multiplayer games, where communication is required among team members.

Another instance where this can be beneficial is during streaming, for example when you have an external microphone connected for voice chat on your stream and inbuilt speakers for game audio, allowing you to moderate your stream audio more efficiently. 

Download the latest version of BlueStacks 5.

You can easily switch between different audio devices from within the "Audio" tab in the Settings menu.
