Halfway through every Zoom meeting I have, no one can hear me, but I'm not on mute


As above. I am not an idiot, I do not press mute accidentally. For the first 10-15 minutes of every meeting, I can be heard absolutely perfectly, but then something happens and no one can hear me. I am not on mute, and this is becoming increasingly frustrating. I have to leave an reenter the meeting for people to hear me again. How do I fix this?

Welcome to the Zoom Community, @MikeTraynor.


I assume that you have the latest Zoom client installed, and that you check the Audio icon to ensure that Mute has not been activated by a shortcut key.


You give us very little information to go on, Mike.  "Losing audio 10-15 minutes from the start of the meeting" is not a common problem in Zoom, so if you could help with a few details about your computer, operating system, type of microphone in use, joining via Web or Desktop client or iOS, etc.

Hey Ray, thanks for your reply. Yep, latest Zoom client, running on my Macbook Pro 2020. I have muted and unmuted myself when this happens, to no effect. Using laptop's mic and Zoom desktop client. I have Krisp running on my system, so if it continues, my next course of action is to uninstall that and see if it makes a difference. Any other ideas? Thanks again, Mike
