Mute / unmute switch

In regular (not push-to-talk) conferencing mode, users can mute and unmute their microphone with this switch. The microphone icon indicates the volume picked up by the microphone.

The mute / unmute switch is hidden when the conference is switched to 'Push-to-talk' mode.

Push-to-talk button

In 'Push-to-talk' mode, the microphones (or phones) of participants are muted. The mute/unmute microphone-with-switch control of participants is replaced by the 'Push-to-talk' button.

To speak, users must press and hold this button.

Release of the button starts a 10-second countdown, after which the microphone (or phone) is muted again automatically.
