- Check the box next to Use Internet.
How to turn on the microphone
The reason it’s not audible in Zoom is because the speaker is off. The microphone can be switched on by simply clicking on the “microphone” icon in the lower left corner, often when entering the office it is crossed out, meaning you are not audible.

To avoid distracting other meeting or class participants with unnecessary noise, press again after you have finished your speech.
On the teacher’s side

On the student’s side
If there is no sound in Zoom on the phone, the fourth option requires you to click on the microphone. It says “Call with Device Tone” in the lower left corner. You need to click on this inscription. This feature appears when you join the conference, click on it so you can be heard and you can hear the speaker.
Make sure that only you are not heard, maybe the seminar organizer turned off the sound for all participants, in this case write your question in the chat.
It often helps to simply restart the device and reconnect to the conference. If you urgently need to attend an online session, try using a computer. There you can log into the application without registering, just by clicking on the link or entering an identifier with a password, as well as a name or nickname.
