What can I do if the sound in Zoom does not work?
When your sound in Zoom does not work you will have to verify certain things. The first thing to see is if you have the microphone muted in case you are in a meeting and the participants cannot hear you . If the microphone is muted, the microphone symbol will appear crossed out with a red stripe, to activate it you just have to press on the icon and that would be it.
If you are from your PC in a Zoom meeting and you cannot be heard, it would be good to verify which microphone the application recognizes, as it could be the case that the app picks up a microphone that does not work. In the event that happens to you, you just have to enter settings, go to the audio section and select the correct microphone.
Can I do an audio test in Zoom from my cell phone?
If you have created your Zoom account from your mobile and want to test the audio, you should know that so far it is not possible to do sound tests in Zoom from your phone , however, there are many applications both in the PlayStore and in the App Store that allow you to test your audio.

How can I test Zoom audio from my PC?
Doing an audio test in Zoom from your computer is very simple. There are basically two methods; inside a meeting room and outside a meeting room.

When it is activated, click on the arrow next to the microphone and select the option “ Test speaker & microphone ”. There you will have the opportunity to check if your microphone is working correctly, and you can even test your PC speakers to see if you can hear the audio of the other meeting participants well.
