Mic is off due to the size of the call on Google Meet [Fix]

Corporate giants such as Google invested in their conferencing platforms. Google Meet is the go-to choice of institutions most of the time, so you can imagine that there are countless meetings taking place as we speak.

However, even the most used app on the market can encounter some issues from time to time.

People have reported that, when their meeting includes a substantial amount of people, their microphones get automatically turned off/disabled.

How can I fix sound issues on Google Meet?

1. Unmute yourself manually

  1. Click on the microphone icon at the bottom.
  2. Your microphone should now be unmuted.

While this is an obvious solution, sometimes all you need to do to fix an issue is right in front of you.

Even if the app muted you due to the increased number of participants, you can simply mute yourself and it should fix the issue most of the time.

2. Troubleshoot the microphone

  1. Click on Start. 
  2. Select Settings. A window should pop up.
  3. Click on System.
  4. Go to the Sound section on the left of your screen.
  5. Scroll down to the Input section.
  6. Select the device you want to troubleshoot.
  7. Click on Troubleshoot.
  8. Follow the steps that pop up on the screen.

Fortunately for you, Microsoft has already implemented a way of detecting and potentially solving your microphone problems.

Following these steps should ensure that your microphone is working properly. This setup will identify any possible problems with your device.

If it does not encounter anything unusual, it means your problem is probably software-related because your input device is not malfunctioning.

Isn’t your microphone working in Windows 10? Take a look at this step-by-step guide to find a solution.

3. Restart your browser

restart browser

It is not unusual for the browser or the meeting itself to act up. Make sure you close and open them again. Also, make sure you save your unsaved progress before closing any open tab.
