Is it possible to use my Droid as a computer microphone (for Skype, Teamspeak, etc) via the USB cord? If not, does anyone know of a Teamspeak client app?

Any help would be appreciated.

Lol, for just an hour?

It is possible, I know few people who used it ad it worked verry well... Basically, you need a software for PC and one for Android, both installed on the devices you want to use for that "experiment". It would work, but it depends of the "performance" of the both PC and Android, but it might have some sound problems because of the microphone...

What's the 'software' you're talking about? Currently the answer is too general to be of much use. –  Peanut May 1 '13 at 15:12

Just buy a microphone. I have been trying to do the same for the last hour.

The App Microphone allows this. Just do it by 3.5mm cord; it's way easier.

There are all sorts of apps that enable you to use your phone's camera and mic on your PC over Wi-fi or USB.

Here are some examples:

Sure... you just have to choose between hacking the phone or hacking the PC.

Via hacking the PC:

Enable USB debugging on the phone. Install the SDK and get adb working. Set up an adb port forward to the phone. Write an apk which listens on a local network port and upon connection opens the microphone and pushes samples through the forwarded 'network' socket. The hard part: on the PC, write a "microphone driver" which gets its data by connecting to the program on the android through the adb port forward. You could also do the same thing substituting a wifi network for the adb-usb.

Via hacking the phone:

Compile a new USB kernel driver which presents the expected interface for a USB microphone, and have it gets its data from the microphone. If going to this much trouble, you might as well make it into a USB webcam. Root and serious coding required.

The answer is "No" - at least not without a dedicated app (if such exists).

BTW, I can understand wanting to do this via Bluetooth, but via USB? Why?

The app would have to route this through debugging info and have a program pic it up. –  Seth Hikari Apr 20 '11 at 20:58
