Muting and unmuting

Mac Windows

If you want to mute yourself during a call, click on the microphone button in the Krisp app.

You will be muted in all the communication apps where Krisp Microphone is used at that moment. The other call participants will stop hearing you.

Clicking on the microphone button once again will unmute you.



You might not see the mute state change in the communication app interface. Make sure to pay attention to the mute state you see in Krisp.

You can also mute and unmute yourself from the Krisp widget. Read more about the widget here.



The other call participants don't hear me. What to do?

    See the Zoom example:

  2. Check if the microphone is muted in the Krisp interface.

  3. In case your microphone has a physical mute button, check if the mic is muted with it.
