If you want to join a Google Meet call on your Windows 10 computer but can’t seem to get your microphone working, don’t worry! In this article, we will guide you through the steps to enable your microphone for Google Meet.
Step 1: Open the Settings app
To begin, open the Settings app on your Windows 10 computer. You can do this by clicking on the Start button in the bottom left corner of your screen and selecting “Settings” from the menu that appears. Alternatively, you can press the Windows key + I to open the Settings app directly.
Step 2: Navigate to the Privacy section
Once you have opened the Settings app, navigate to the Privacy section by clicking on “Privacy” in the left-hand menu. This will take you to a page where you can control various privacy settings for your computer.
Step 3: Select Microphone
On the Privacy page, select “Microphone” from the list of options on the left-hand side. This will take you to a page where you can control which apps have access to your microphone.
Step 4: Enable Google Meet
On the Microphone page, scroll down until you see “Google Chrome” or “Google Meet” listed under “Allowed apps.” If it is not already enabled, click on the toggle switch to enable access to your microphone for Google Meet. You may need to restart your computer for this change to take effect.
Step 5: Test your microphone
Once you have enabled access to your microphone for Google Meet, it’s a good idea to test that everything is working correctly before joining a call. To do this, open Google Meet and click on the “Make a call” button in the top right corner of the screen. This will take you to a page where you can make a test call to yourself. Click on the “Make a test call” button and follow the prompts to test your microphone and camera.
By following these simple steps, you should be able to enable your microphone for Google Meet on your Windows 10 computer. Remember to always check that your microphone is working correctly before joining a call to ensure a smooth and successful meeting experience.
