By default chrome uses the default audio device (related question here: Configure the audio output of chrome). But my question is: How would I configure another audio output device, not the default device as the chrome output device?
This would be useful in a situation where I have two wireless headsets for example.


Audio Router is outdated with Windows 10 use the advanced settings of Windows :

  • This Windows 10 control panel + VoiceMeeter Banana + VM-Cable at vb-audio.com/Cable/index.htm was helpful for me. – Ryan Nov 22 '19 at 3:24

    Superb solution. I don't see chrome in the applications listed tough. – Rémi Benoit Mar 19 '20 at 17:02

    @RémiBenoit Chrome will only be listed, if any sound is played. – Peter Apr 1 '20 at 5:47

This is not supported yet. A draft from the W3C has been drafted on November 2018, Audio Output Devices API, but may take years to be implemented in the browsers.

There are free third-party programs which might help here:

    Audio router doesn't work with Chrome, Chrome crashs. – A-312 Apr 3 '19 at 9:15
  • @A-312: You could signal the problem on Audio Router site. – harrymc Apr 3 '19 at 9:35
  • it's chrome issue : github.com/audiorouterdev/audio-router/issues/105 – A-312 Apr 3 '19 at 20:11
  • For future readers: The current workaround is changing the compatibility to anything else in Google Chrome's properties. It might revert back, but using "Change settings for all users" may keep it from happening. – harrymc Apr 3 '19 at 20:35
