See who’s making noise in meetings

Meeting hosts and company admins can now quickly and easily see which participant is generating noise at any particular time.

The Participants list inside My Meeting Video allows a host or company admin user to view and monitor all the active participants currently dialed into the meeting. In order to better manage a meeting, hosts or admins can use the list to mute or disconnect individual guests, as well all users.

Knowing who to mute

However, we often received feedback from users describing that sometimes, it isn’t always easy to know who to mute from the list.

With this latest feature, we’ve updated the Participants list to make the Microphone icon displayed next to each participant an “active” noise indicator. This means it will actively change appearance to visually indicate if a guest is making noise by changing color from gray to blue.

So now, if there is a sudden interruption of unwanted background noise, say from a faulty microphone, or a user who’s in a noisy public place such as an airport, it’s really quick to see who is making the noise and be able to mute their audio.

Using the noise indicator to mute a guest

Whilst guests who have joined the meeting via desktop, mobile or web can view the Participants list, only a meeting host or a company admin can mute other guests:

  • In the list, check the Microphone icon next to each participant’s name
  • If this has actively “changed” state from grey to blue, it is indicating that this specific user is making noise
  • If you would like to mute the guest, tap the microphone icon / active noise indicator next to their name
  • To unmute the guest, the host or admin user should tap the Microphone icon again from the Participants list
