If you won’t be talking for a while during a meeting, you can mute your microphone to prevent unintended sounds from your end from being broadcast to the meeting.
Click the Turn off microphone button to mute.
Your microphone is muted. While muted, no sounds from your end of the meeting will be sent to everyone else.
Click the Turn on microphone button to unmute.
Your microphone turns back on.
You can also mute another person if their audio is distracting. Hover your mouse over their video thumbnail and click the Mute button, or click a person’s name in the People pane and click the Mute button. For privacy reasons, you cannot unmute another person, so they will have to unmute themselves.
