How to use an Android smartphone as a PC microphone?
There is no separate microphone option on the desktop, again no matter how expensive your laptop is, there is no good/excellent quality microphone! Because most of our users use separate external headphones or headsets for talking, manufacturers do not think much about the microphone quality of laptops. But if you do not have headphones/headset or do not like to read headphones for urgent video calls then you can use your Android smartphone as a PC / laptop microphone.
Because the current midrange Android smartphones have a very good quality microphone and you will also get a noise cancellation feature in many smartphones. Now if you use the smartphone as the microphone of the PC / Laptop, you can also use the Noise Cancellation feature of the smartphone on the PC! This method will be very useful for you if you do not have headphones in an emergency. Especially in this Corona situation, if the headphones are worn out, the person who goes out and buys a new one may not have a chance.

You can use it for various purposes including voice chatting, recording, and voice remote control on a PC. With the tool, you can connect the mobile microphone to the PC via Bluetooth, USB, and WiFi.
