Automatic Gain Control

Last updated:

Automatic Gain Control (AGC) allows to automatically adjust the sensitivity of your microphone based on the volume of the input it is receiving.

This normally helps give a good conference experience with all participants being heard at a similar volume level. However, if you work in a noisy environment where there is background noise (e.g. other people speaking), this can cause background sounds to be amplified via your unmuted microphone. If you do work in this sort of environment you may want to turn off this feature.


The option Turn on automatic gain control is checked by default, so that you can get a better experience in conferences where participants speak at different volumes.
