    chat headset for chat & game audio through speakers

    I have a chat headset plugged into my wireless Xbox One controller. With Steam and Windows settings, how can I have game chat go to the headset while game audio goes to speakers?

    'normally' , for that sort of thing , IF it shows up as an audio device under 'playback devices', you make your game speakers the 'default' device and your headset the 'default communications device'.

    Depends if the chat headset shows up in the list though.

    On the playback tab, I already have the speakers set as default device and the headset set as default communications device.
