Allow or block audio capture

Allows you to set whether a user is prompted to grant a website access to their audio capture device. This policy applies to all URLs except for those configured in the 'AudioCaptureAllowedUrls' (Sites that can access audio capture devices without requesting permission) list.

If you enable this policy or don't configure it (the default setting), the user is prompted for audio capture access except from the URLs in the 'AudioCaptureAllowedUrls' list. These listed URLs are granted access without prompting.

If you disable this policy, the user is not prompted, and audio capture is accessible only to the URLs configured in 'AudioCaptureAllowedUrls'.

This policy affects all types of audio inputs, not only the built-in microphone.

Supported on: Microsoft Edge version 77, Windows 7 or later
