As a host, you can mute all participants during meetings directly from your Cisco device.
This feature allows the host and co-host of a Webex Meeting to:
Mute all: all participants are muted, except the host and the participant who is currently sharing.
Unmute all: all participants are able to unmute themselves.
Mute all on entry: you can choose whether participants joining in the meeting are muted or not.
Allow to unmute self: you can allow or prevent participants to unmute themselves.
Request participants to unmute
When a participant is muted, the host and co-host can request them to unmute directly from the participant list. Tap on the participant's name and select Request unmute. The participant receives a notification asking them to unmute.
In Webex meetings or personal room meetings, only the host and co-host can mute all participants. All features listed above are available.
In Webex space meetings, everyone can mute all participants. However, the other features listed above (unmute all, mute on entry, request participants to unmute, and allow participants to unmute themselves) are not available.
Participants joining from platforms, devices, or Webex Meeting apps version that don't support the option Allow/prevent attendees to unmute themselves are still able to unmute themselves. For example, a participant joining from an Android device is seen as muted, but can unmute.
Mute all doesn't mute a participant who is currently sharing.
In a call or a meeting, tap the Participants button in the call controls on your device or touch controller.
