I am requested to create a Microsoft Teams meeting, I want to ensure that participants microphones remain disabled by default. How can I achieve this and control the mic use during virtual meetings? Are there specific settings or configurations I need to implement?

  2. Double-click the meeting you want to configure.
  3. Select Meeting options near the top of the screen.
  4. Turn off the “Allow mic for attendees?” toggle.
    disallow users to use the Mic in Microsoft Teams meeting
  5. Click Save to apply the changes.
  6. Now, all attendees (except presenters) will join the meeting with their mics muted.
