Are you having trouble getting audio to work on Zoom with your Mac? You’re not alone. Many Mac users have experienced audio issues in Zoom, such as no sound during meetings, poor sound quality, or garbled audio. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to get your Mac’s audio back up and running on Zoom.

First, make sure that the correct device is selected in the Audio settings of your Zoom app. Go to Settings > Audio, then select the device you want to use for audio output and input. You may need to test a few different devices to find the one that works best for you.

Next, check that your Mac’s microphone permissions are set correctly. Open System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Microphone and make sure that the box next to “Allow apps downloaded from” is checked. If it isn’t checked already, select it and click Allow.

If you’re still having issues with your Mac’s audio on Zoom after following these steps, try restarting both your computer and the Zoom app itself. This should help clear up any temporary issues that could be causing the problem.

Finally, if none of these solutions work for you, try restarting your router or checking for any updates for both Zoom and your Mac operating system (OS). If all else fails, contact customer support for further assistance with troubleshooting your issue.

We hope this guide helps get your Mac’s audio back up and running on Zoom!

Troubleshooting Audio Issues on Zoom

If you are using Zoom on an Android device, there may be a few different reasons why your audio is not working. First, check to make sure that your phone’s speaker is not muted and that the in-app speaker has not been disabled. Additionally, it is possible that your device’s microphone is disabled or turned off. To turn it back on, go to your device’s Settings > Apps & notifications > App permissions and enable the microphone permission for Zoom. If the issue persists, try restarting both your device and the Zoom app.

Enabling Sound in Zoom on Mac

To turn on sound in Zoom on a Mac, open the Zoom app and click the Meeting tab. From there, click the Audio option and select either Telephone or Computer Audio. If you select Computer Audio, you will be prompted to choose which device you would like to use for your audio. Select the microphone and speaker you would like Zoom to use – usually this will be your computer’s built-in microphone and speakers, but if you have connected an external microphone or headset you can select that instead. Once you have selected your audio devices, click Join with Computer Audio to join your meeting with sound.

Troubleshooting Zoom Audio Issues

To get your Zoom audio to work, make sure you have a working microphone and speakers. If you don’t have any, try using headphones with a built-in microphone. Once you’ve connected your audio device, join the meeting and click “Test Speaker and Microphone” in the bottom left corner of the screen. A pop-up window will appear to test your speakers. If you don’t hear the ringtone, use the drop-down menu or click No to switch speakers until you hear it. Click Yes to continue to the microphone test. Follow the instructions in the window and make sure your volume is turned up so that everyone can hear your voice clearly during the meeting.


In conclusion, Zoom is a powerful and reliable platform for video conferencing. It provides an easy-to-use interface with a wide range of features, such as audio and video chat, screen sharing, file sharing, and more. It is compatible with both Macs and PCs, as well as Android and iOS devices. With its high-quality audio and video capabilities, Zoom makes it easy to communicate with colleagues or friends from anywhere in the world.
