Muting and unmuting - Amazon Chime

Muting and unmuting

You can mute and unmute your audio using the Amazon Chime application.

To mute or unmute audio

  • From the Amazon Chime application, do one of the following:

    • Choose Mute at the top of the meeting window.

    • Choose the microphone icon at the top of the Chat window.

    • For Windows, type the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Y.

    • For macOS, type the keyboard shortcut Cmd+Y.

Meeting attendees that are signed in to the Amazon Chime application can mute other meeting attendees, as well as themselves. They can also unmute other attendees who have joined the meeting from a phone or an in-room video system.


If attendees join the meeting using their computer audio or the Amazon Chime client (VoIP audio), they cannot be unmuted by others. Only they can unmute themselves.

To mute or unmute meeting attendees

  • On the meeting roster, do one of the following:

    • Choose the audio icon next to the attendee's name.

    • Choose or right-click the attendee's name, and choose Mute or Unmute.

Attendees who join the meeting from a phone or in-room video system can override the Amazon Chime mute controls by using their local device. For example, the mute button on their local device overrides any unmute requests from Amazon Chime. They can also press *7 to mute and unmute themselves.

Meeting hosts, delegates, and moderators who are signed in to the Amazon Chime app can choose Disable Attendee Unmute to keep others from unmuting attendees.
