Hearing track on youtube whilst recording vocals in Audacity

Hi there. Using version 3.4.2. In previous versions I used to be able to play a track on youtube or Itunes through my bluetooth earphones, whilst recording my singing in Audacity using my bluetooth mic.

Now when I try the same thing, when I press record in Audacity it stops the youtube audio coming though my earphones, making it harder to sing in time.

I’m aware I can record the youtube audio first into Audacity, then sing over that using overdub, but I want to do it the way I was doing before as the vocal audio is cleaner.

I don’t believe any of my settings have changed. Any help gratefully appreciated, thank you.

Solved! It was nothing to do with Audacity, I was able to force audio outputs and inputs in my windows settings for different apps.
