listening to a meeting in navigator without a microphone


Hello ! I want to attend a zoom meeting in my navigator, even if my computer has no microphone. That's not a problem because I only want to listen.

But zoom continues on telling me, every 30 seconds, "your navigator doesn't allow you using your microphone" and interrupts the audio sound ! Then I can only "join the audio by computer" and wait for the next interrruption.

I have no other choice in the settings than one microphone, and it doesn't exist.

I'm unable to follow the meeting with so many interruptions. 

Does someone have a solution please ?

(I hope my English is understandable because I'm French)

Hi Valilou,


I suggest reinstalling zoom android app on your cell phone.  When using the zoom app, zoom should be able to use your cell phone microphone.  During the installation, please permit zoom to use your cell phone microphone.  This should stop the interruptions.

Hi Eliot and thanks for taking the time to answer.

Anyway it doesn't match my question because, as I said earlier :

1) I want to use the home computer and not my phone (my choice)

2) I don't want to install the zoom app and want to run zoom in a navigator (my choice)

3) there is no microphone on this computer.


Given this, can I use again Zoom to listen to a meeting as I used to do before on a web navigator on this same computer without a microphone ?
