I have set one output device (my speakers) as my default audio output and another output device (my headphones) as my default communications device. I have several programs that I use for communication (most often a casual game, web browser or other program that uses voicechat), that windows does not put on my default communication device.
Is there a way that I can tell windows that a program is a communications program? Then I can keep talking to people on my headset while playing music (or video, or any other non-chat audio) on my speakers.
Say a headset is connected to the ASUS MG279 and speakers to the TX-NR626:
And for example Spotify is playing music and I`m using voicechat on Chrome:
Then Windows just plays everything on my speakers:
An nothing on my communication device:
How do I tell Windows that Chrome is a communication app?
My question is about functionality thats built into windows (seperate output for communication and non-cummunication audio). If that does not work a generic solution to split up programs to audio devices would be just as good, but the following questions show that that is not possible in (any version of) Windows:
