How to Use Your Phone as a Microphone on PC: 6 Easy Steps

You will need a high-quality microphone for audio recordings, voice chat, or voice recognition if you are using your computer. Even though it may be the standard, every computer does not come with a built-in microphone, and not every built-in microphone performs well. So here is How to Use Your Phone as a Microphone on PC.

Why settle for a cheap computer microphone when you have your Android phone or tablet close by? This device is more than enough for your computer mic and can be connected through Bluetooth, USB, or Wi-Fi.

Install WO Mic

There are many options available in the Google Play Store, but WO Mic from Wireless Orange provides the easiest setup and connection options. The app works on both Windows and Mac computers, but Mac OS X users can only utilize the Wi-Fi connection option.

  • Install WO Mic for free from the Google Play Store

For improved audio quality and no ads, try the pro version for $3.99.

Step 2 Install the Client Program & Driver

Because connecting through Bluetooth and USB are the easier options (just connect or plugin and you’re ready), we’ll go through the Wi-Fi setup, since it’s applicable to both Windows and Mac.

If you have a Windows PC, download and install the following two files.

If you have a Mac, download and install the following package.

You may need to adjust your Mac’s security preferences in order to open the package. Alternatively, you can simply control-click (or right-click) on the file, and select “Open.”

Step 3Connect the Mic (How to Use Your Phone as a Microphone on PC)

Open WO Mic on your Android and enter the Settings, select Transport, then select “Wifi” from the options (unless you’re using Bluetooth or USB). Depending on what you’re using the mic for, select the proper Audio source. Additional settings allow you to change the media and control port, but you shouldn’t need to adjust those.
