Audio stopped working after an Update

Windows updates and other software updates can mess with your audio settings which can cause issues with the audio of your Sound Alerts services. Here are some of the steps you can follow to fix this issue.

Check the basic audio settings

Some updates, even the minor ones that tend to go unnoticed, can reset basic audio settings without your knowledge.
So when the audio of your Sound Alerts suddenly stops working, it is always good to check your basic audio settings of Windows and your streaming software.
An excellent way to start there is to reassure that the correct audio device is selected.
You can also use our article about sound issues here and our audio troubleshooting video here to ensure that your audio settings are correct.

Check your network security settings

Updates can also affect your connection to Sound Alerts by changing your network's security settings.
This can also be caused by something external like your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
In this case, you might want to check if you can reach all the Sound Alerts domains by using this article here and set up a DNS following this guide here.
