Zoom Meeting Introductions:
Zoom is a cloud-based meeting platform that offers video, audio, and screen sharing options across multiple platforms, including mobile. You can join any zoom meeting by clicking the muting URL or entering the meeting ID in the zoom web portal, mobile application, desktop application. You may want to mute yourself or someone else on Zoom, especially if you’re in a larger group meeting.
This Fixingbee will teach you how to mute or mute yourself in a zoom meeting on the computer, phone, or tablet. With both desktop and mobile applications, you can choose to mute and unmute yourself, with a separate caller or all participants in the call. You can also open the “Manage Participants” menu to mute or Unmute all members.
Your microphone will automatically mute how you set up the zoom, and you’ll also learn how to use the push-to-talk feature to temporarily mute your microphone if you want to talk. It is important to note that if you are the organizer of the meeting, you will only have the ability to mute or Unmute the other. Participants do not have the ability to mute others, although they can certainly mute themselves.
The host assigned to the meeting was chosen as the alternate host (if the host cannot join), the host will have control. If you’re hosting a full zoom meeting with a disturbing or confusing background listening, it’s possible to mute everyone on the call at the same time using the “All mute” button in the “Participants” list. Depending on the settings, your customers will receive a pop-up alert saying “Host wants to mute/unmute your microphone”.
