microphone not working with chrome browser

pk flag

The chrome browser stopped working with my microphone, I'm using multiple chrome profiles and it stopped on all profiles. there are no error messages that I can see. this is not a permission issue and the mic works well with firefox and other application. I think that it started after enabling JBL Bluetooth earbuds. any idea how to debug this issue?

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
