Petcube Two-way Audio Not Working: Causes.

The first step to solving the audio issue with the Petcube cam is identifying likely causes. We have discussed some of the most common ones here:

1. Slow Internet Speed

Your internet speed is very crucial to seamless audio transmission on the Petcube Cam. When the internet speed is poor, audio data may not be able to be transmitted quickly enough, resulting in a delay or interruption in the audio transmission.

So it may sound choppy, distorted, or not even work at all. If your internet speed is less than 2Mbps, it is most likely the cause of your “Petcube Audio not working”.

2. Petcube Cam Has An Error/bug

If your camera has been running for a long period of time, it might have encountered some software errors or bugs that can cause the audio to stop working. If you suspect this, reset the camera back to its default.

3. Microphone Access is Disabled

If the Petcube app does not have permission to access the microphone on your device, you will not be able to send any audio to the Petcube camera. You can confirm whether it is toggled on your Android or iOS device.

4. Low Volume on the PetCube app or on your device

As obvious as this may sound, checking whether the volume slider is up may save you stress. The Petcube app comes with an in-built volume setting, adjust it as you deem fit. Also, confirm if your device is not muted: that might just be the culprit.
