Mic Stops Working After 4-5 Minutes


I am having a problem with my mic not working after about 4-5 minutes into Zoom meetings. I log into my Zoom account, have strong wi-fi, and complete the mic check and audio check successfully. Others are able to hear me for about 4-5 minutes, then the mic does not work (audio still works). This happens when I start a meeting and when I join others' meetings. I am able to successfully participate in Google Meet virtual meetings, so I do not think it is my computer. In fact, the mic fail happens to me in Zoom on both of my computers. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Zoom app. Suggestions? Thank you!



Just wanted to say I am experiencing this issue as well; it started about 3-4 weeks ago. I do not have the problem with any other meeting application, only Zoom. Sometimes, if I unplug my headphones & plug them back in, it will work for a random amount of time (but only a minute or so) and then stops working again.
