The Zoom app works in the same way whether you're using an iPhone or an Android device. This means that the procedure is the same as the one described for muting Zoom on iPhone.

2. Tap it to see the list of people who are on the call.
3. At the bottom of the screen, below the list of participants, is the Mute All option. When you tap it, a pop-up will appear asking you to confirm the action.
4. You'll also notice the checked option Allow participants to unmute themselves in the pop-up. If you uncheck this option, the other participants will not be able to re-enable their audio for the conversation.
2. Mute Specific Participants
If you want to mute only certain people on the call, you must return to the Participants page. Once there, tap on the name of the person you want to mute and select Mute Audio.
