Change HP Computer Microphone Audio


If you have an HP laptop and are using the built-in microphone for a meeting, the Bang & Olufsen app allows you to customize how your microphone works. This setting is useful when multiple users are talking into the built-in microphone on the laptop. Did you know? Bang & Olufsen is the name of the company that makes the audio equipment for the laptop. Their app allows you to make the built-in microphone multi-directional.
