Any Chromebook users out there? [Edit]

Gif: You mean I have to do this © thing for GIFs too?

My son has a new Acer Chromebook that he’s using for school. He is listening though Apple plug-in headphones with built in mic. The headphones work fine, but he’s convinced that the mic used to work and now doesn’t. Though I’ve read various sources online that say the mic should work, it is my belief that he was using the internal mic and didn’t know it.


Does anybody know if the mic should work? These CBs are pretty short on settings, it’s either on or off, so I think we just have a basic compatibility issue here.

Edit: Turns out it was a bum headset. Tried another and it worked.
