Muting or unmuting the microphone

Last updated:

Muting and unmuting your microphone is supported during active calls only.

When you start or join a conference, your microphone is automatically muted by default, unless otherwise configured by the administrator of the domain that the conference belongs to. You need to unmute your microphone when you want to talk.

When you start or answer a direct call, your microphone is unmuted.

  1. To mute your microphone during a call, click or tap (Mute) in the call action bar.

    The microphone is turned off and the other participants cannot hear you. The color of the strikethrough microphone icon in the call action bar changes to red.

  2. To unmute your microphone, click (Unmute) in the call action bar.

    Your microphone is now working again, so the other participants can hear you. The strikethrough microphone icon changes to its normal design.

On iOS and Android mobile devices, you can mute or unmute your microphone even when you are not in Circuit or your device is locked. You need just to tap the microphone icon in the active call notification that is shown in your device’s notification center and lock screen.
