This feature allows the host and co-host of a Webex Meeting to:

  • Mute all participants: all participants are muted, except the host and the participant who is currently sharing.

  • Unmute all participants: all participants are able to unmute themselves.

Two toggles are available when selecting the "" icon:
  • Mute participants on entry: you can choose whether participants joining in the meeting are muted or not.

  • Allow attendees to unmute themselves: you can allow or prevent participants to unmute themselves.

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 Teams meetings, everyone can mute all participants. However, the other features listed above (unmute all, mute on entry, and allow participants to unmute themselves) are not available.

Limitations

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.
