Not if you’re on your phone (Zoom)

🤷🏻‍♂️ I personally treat it like a walkie talkie and literally ride the mute button the entire meeting. ( even mute/unmute between each bite so I can eat on some calls Lol )

You are on mute

People say “I was double muted” these days also. Not sure wth that means lol

I dial in from my phone so I can use my AirPods on Zoom. So double mute would be muted on my phone and also muted on zoom. It happens 🤷🏻‍♂️

◼️

It happens with Google Meet due to auto-muting. If you don’t know what number joiner you are, you don’t know if you got muted or not on your way in.

One time an account person muted me during MY PRESENTATION....

Good thing you are a visual storyteller.

Jeff Bezos in front of Congress

At times the muting is endearing.

I like even better when people in large meeting are NOT muted and then start a phone conversation and the whole team is hearing half a random conversation and all trying to figure out who to frantically send IM to saying to shut up. This has happened several times in large meetings now, can’t believe it keeps happening. 🤣
