How to Mute Your Microphone on Google Meet

When taking part in a video conference using Google Meet, formerly known as Hangouts Meet, you sometimes need to mute your microphone to cough, silence barking dogs, or just be polite and avoid adding noise when other people are talking. Here’s how to do it.

First, you must open the Microphone / Call toolbar. If you use Google Meet in a browser on a Mac or Windows 10 PC, place your mouse cursor over the bottom edge of the Google Meet window until it appears. On iPad and Android, tap the bottom edge of the screen and the toolbar will appear.

1
On this toolbar, you will see three large circular buttons in the middle. To turn off (mute) your microphone, click or tap the button that looks like a small microphone icon.

2
The microphone icon will turn red, indicating that your microphone has now been muted. Even though the icon is red, no one in the meeting can hear you speak and everyone who participates will be notified that your microphone has been muted.

To turn your microphone back on (make a sound), click or tap the microphone button again on the toolbar.

3
You can now continue talking and everyone can hear you.
