When using AirPods 2 for Google Meet video calls on macOS, my voice gets very distorted and sounds 'robotic'.
Only happens with Google Meet running the the browser, but no other apps.
How can I solve this?
What I’ve tried with no success:
- Resetting the AirPods
- Switching to use the MacBook’s mic
- Safari and Chrome
- No such problems when using Meet/Gmail.app on my iPhone
- No such problems with wired headphones
Some think it's a CPU issue: Chrome/Meet using lots of resources. I am running on a 4-month old MacBook Pro (1.4 GHz Quad-Core i5, 8GB 2133MHz RAM) so can't imagine that could be at fault.
Also, don't know if it's relevant, but seems that the AirPods 2 are using the SCO codec instead of AAC:
I've also already tried selecting the internal microphone, this didn’t help as long as the AirPods were connected:
