Zoom - Muting and Unmuting Participants in a Meeting

Information and a link to Zoom Support about how to mute and unmute participants in a Zoom meeting.


As the host or co-host in a meeting, you can manage your participants, including muting and unmuting participants to manage background noise and distractions. All participants can also mute or unmute themselves, unless the host has prevented them from unmuting.

Due to privacy and security reasons, the host cannot unmute other participants without their consent. The host can either use the Ask All to Unmute option, which will prompt every user to unmute themselves, or can schedule the meeting with Request permission to unmute participants enabled, which will prompt the participants for pre-approval to be unmuted by the host. 

Check out the link below from Zoom Support for more information about the mute and unmute feature:
