[Windows] Changing Default Audio Output Device does not change audio output device in Editor and Build



The expected behavior is that when you change Default Output Device, the sound starts to play on that device. This is how all applications line Chrome, Firefox, VLC etc. work. Also, this is default behavior on macOS.
This affects both Editor and Builds.

To reproduce this issue, at least 2 Audio Output devices are needed, for example laptop (with speaker) and external monitor (with speaker).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open attached project (
2. Enter Play mode
3. Press on Speaker icon button in the Windows bottom left
4. Select different Playback device

Expected behavior: sound starts to play via selected Playback device.
Actual behavior: sound stays playing on previously selected Playback device.

Reproduced with: 2017.2.0b5 - 5.5.2p4.
