If you are reading this article, then you may have been messed up by your voice playback and voice input devices. Many people on different video conferencing platforms have reported problems with their audio while in meetings. This has happened to people new to platforms such as TeamViewer because the instructions are not straightforward. This article will show you how to fix mic and audio sound issues.

You should know

TeamViewer does not require you to do any audio configuration before you start using it. It usually detects the available sound devices (input and output) and uses them in any presentation, video meeting, or conference call you engage in. The article will guide you to the setting areas where you will be familiarized with the different audio functions.

Mic and Audio Settings on TeamViewer

These sections will touch on most (or all) of TeamViewer’s functions that involve audio configuration. By looking at them, you can fix any mic and audio issues.

These steps should work across all platforms – Windows, macOS, Mac OS X, and Linux. You can follow them through whether you are connected to the Internet or not.

  1. From your list of apps, click on TeamViewer to launch it. When launched, TeamViewer opens on the ‘Remote Control’ tab, showing the remote ID and password (if you are connected to the Internet).
  2. Now, click on the ‘Extras’ button at the menu bar. Click on the first ‘Option’ button on the menu that pops up. This opens the “TeamViewer options” box.

Under the “Remote Control” tab

Using TeamViewer for remote control, you can play computer sounds and music. You can also start recording remote control sessions automatically.

If you need to change any of the settings above, click the ‘Remote Control’ tab on the right and then check the relevant button on the screen to your left side.

Under the “Meeting” tab

You can share computer sounds and a mic during a meeting (like in remote control). You can also auto-record the meeting. Click on the ‘Meeting’ tab and check the relevant buttons to your issue of concern, if any.

Under the “Audio conferencing” tab

This tab highlights the audio configuration settings. Under the “Video Playback” and “Voice Input” sections, you can set the speaker and microphone to be used during communication. The existing audio input and output devices are the “standard” options.

Extend the dropdown box to select the device you want to broadcast it on. You can test them by:

  1. Clicking on the ‘Play’ button next to the ‘Mute’ label to test your chosen speaker.
  2. Make a sound to test the microphone you have chosen. You will see the “Signal” area growing in color.

During a TeamViewer session

Whenever you are on a presentation, a video call, or an audio conferencing, always check on the ‘Audio’ section to see whether your microphone is muted or the speaker’s volume is down.

When someone else is speaking, it is advisable that you mute your microphone and have your speaker at a reasonable volume. A good meeting moderator should ask you to speak, and only then should you unmute your microphone.

All the guidelines mentioned here should deal with all the issues you have. Now, enjoy TeamViewer without audio configuration problems.
