Unable to Speak through ESO Voice Channels

Hello,

Currently I am unable to pick up any voice communication from either Zone channel and Guild channels. My head set/mic work just fine as I'm able to use voice over the PS4 party system but I am unable to pick up voice from the ESO social chat menus. When I'm in social chat menus, odds things happen intermittently, for example, I'll I choose a guild channel and it will count down from 6 to 0, then it repeats without any intervention from me. Sometimes it will allow me to disconnect, sometimes it will not. When I am able to back out of a channel, to choose a different channel, the previous channel disappears from the menu and never returns. Some times when logging in for the first time of the day, it auto logs me into a guild channel randomly and I can't get out/disconnect, it just continues to count down from 6 to 0, then repeats. Sometimes when logging in, I'' check the voice channels and there will be no option for zone chat. Each example given, there is no voice commutation but I can hear the game environment sounds just fine, just no person to person communication.

Please advise, Thank you

    A few of my guildmates who had similar problems were able to solve it with these instructions for PS4 settings:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/elderscrollsonline/comments/arcdez/easy_fix_for_broken_voice_chat/

    (I think ESO just offers this, when following a link titled "Why is my Guild Chat stuck on a countdown timer?":

    Update: I still have problems with the voice chat even following the directions provided in the youtube clip, Thank you red_bird. I didn't realize this was such an issue, dating back to 2015. After reading many post from these forums and reddit, I found another suggestion to "reboot" the PS4, so as to rebuild the database. This failed to resolve my issue as well.

    Truly disappointing that an issue that has been taking place for 4 years without resolution. If this was my job and I couldn't resolve an issue after 4 years, I'd be unemployed. (I'm a Building Engineer in DC)

    What makes this more disappointing, is the difficulty with running trials without voice comm, enjoying the usual banter between guildies and friends. Thanks to who ever is responsible for this mess, you've taken a game that's designed to be fun and enjoyable and because of a lack of attention and misplaced priorities, the game is a bit less enjoyable now. Whats the point of playing any game if it isn't enjoyable?

    The fact that I've not received a response from anyone at ZOS, also speaks volumes.

    I'm sorry it didn't work for you. It's no good to be unable to communicate, as you said, and that ESO help page that says they're working on a solution was last updated years ago, so we're meant to believe they've been working on it all this time with no success. :neutral:

    I see in your sig that you're a guild master. So ESO's advice to try leaving the guild, logging out, and then re-joining would be a huge pain for you, if it's even possible. And everything else on that page is about trying to prevent it from happening in the first place.

    I hope there's another solution out there that will work for you.

    Thank you for responding, I will place a ticket and see if this can resolve my issue. I also have read that by leaving the PS4 powered off during normal maintenance hours (Tuesday) that this could also help, which I plan on doing.

    Updated: One of my guildies set me up with a fix and by changing my DNS settings resolved the issue with voice chat. Work like a charm now. Posting in case anyone else is having similar problems.

    I’ve been having issues with chat on PS4. Changing the DDS settings other work arounds have not worked. Filled out a feedback ticket, but not optimistic.
