Thank you. looking at the page you directed me to I have found it says:

"You need to add a "Microphone Usage Description" to your project's "Player Settings" under "Other Settings" -> "Configuration" section. This ensures that NSMicrophoneUsageDescription is added to the plist in the macOS application bundle package Contents. You could also modify that manually if you wish."

For some reason I have not been able to find the Microphone Usage Description field in unity. I am using Unity 2020.1.11f1 on a Windows computer. To build for mac should I use a Mac computer?

Hi @Volfase,

Could you tell us why it's not working for you and what you have tried so far?
Maybe share description of the issue, Photon Voice version, Unity version, macOS version, etc.

I got this experience too. I only found the place to set NSMicrophoneUsageDescription on MacBook, but it's not on Windows. Maybe @NetworkingWorker has another way to do it.
