Over the last few years, Zoom has been a lifesaver for millions of professionals across the globe. There is no doubt that every single person uses it almost every single workday to get in touch with their colleagues, superiors, and clients. Zoom can also be used for personal communication other than just for work. Due to its easy-to-use structure and free-to-use license, Zoom has been loved and relied upon by many around the globe. But sometimes it becomes difficult to address and understand each and everything when there are many participants attending all at once. It can be chaotic as well as frustrating for the host as well as participants to comprehend everything, and people might shy away from speaking up in case they get interrupted midway.
From this, the question arises: Can we mute the participants in the Zoom meeting when we are not the host or co-host? Unfortunately, you cannot mute anyone from the zoom meeting if you are not the one hosting the meeting. Till now, there has been no option made available by Zoom which allows the participants to mute somebody else at their own will. One can surely mute themselves voluntarily.
But there are other alternative ways to do so. As a meeting participant, you do not have the ability to mute others. If a participant’s microphone is causing distractions, you can consider notifying a host/co-host or the participant using the chat feature.
