If you accidentially disallowed Skype app accessing your microphone on iOS7 you can change the setting via:

Setting > Privacy > Microphone > Skype

I have same problem after downloading IOS 7 on my ipad. Which I have no problem at all previously, even my other IOS devices has no problem with IOS 5 or 6. I really need help to make somebody else heard my voice from my ipad.

You don't get asked the option re the microphone. Downloaded it twice and it stays muted. Changed it in privacy settings works a treat. Seems the default is off! PITA.

Hi i had the same problem and search all iPhone and iPad issus on the web. i fixed my problem and i'm sure this is a corect solution. go to setting--> privacy --> check microphone and turn on all microphones applications. Good Luck.

I can´t find this on my phone, can you guide me ?

To manage your microphone privacy permissions on iOS 7, go to Settings > Privacy > Microphone.

From the home screen go to settings, the icon with the cog on it, then go to privacy third block down, then microphone, last option and then make sure the button is showing green. If it white it is switched off. That is all that needs to be done, but check you have the latest Skype for IO7. It came out a couple days ago. Good luck

Thanks, that's great. I can be heard by other users again by just simply changing the privacy setting. Thanks a lot !
