Zoom has got a very famous audio notification feature that tells you when a participant joins or leaves a meeting. This feature comes in very handy when you are waiting for someone but it can be very frustrating when you are in a large conference meeting and you hear the notifications constantly as people enters or leaves meeting. The notification sound is like a door-bell sound in order to give you the feeling of a real person coming in by ringing the bell.
The audio notification option on Zoom has got various customisations like playing the sound for everyone or restricting it to host and co-hosts. It also provides the option to ask to record user’s voice in order to use as notification when someone joins the meeting by phone.
How to turn Zoom audio notifications on/off
Users can easily toggle audio notifications on a Zoom call based on what they prefer. This can be easily done before a call commences and even during the call. This feature is very important for the users who are waiting on someone as well as are doing various other chores. The audio tune works as an alert that someone has joined the Zoom call especially when you are not looking at the screen. In order to turn on/off the notifications follow these simple steps.
- If you are logged into your Zoom account from your desktop all you have to do is to click on Settings options located at the left-hand column. If you are using Zoom app, click on your profile icon>click Settings>View More Settings.
- When you are in Settings, click on In Meeting (Basic) in the left column and then scroll down. Now search for an option called ‘Sound Notification When Someone Joins or Leaves’. Toggle ON or OFF according to your preferences.
- If you have toggled it ON, you can select from three options. The first one allows you to play the sound each time when someone enters or leaves. The second option is only for the hosts and co-hosts and the third one allows you to record a user’s voice as a notification which is only for those who join by phone.
