Host unmute participant in meeting sdk

after reading this article,
i have set setting in account to allow host to unmute participants when user has give permission. however the problem still persists.

  1. How can i go about allowing the host to have the right to unmute particpants in zoom web sdk?
  2. Could it also be possible to set this in the meeting configs if it is supported? or progammatically unmute them?

Which Web Meeting SDK version?

Hi, @spaceman.developer.

Thank you for posting in the Zoom Developer Forum. To mute participants with Zoom Web Meeting SDK, there are two functions you can leverage : mute and muteAll . Down below I’ve link the function for reference:



Feel free to let us know if this help or if you have additional questions.

@donte.zoom i meant to say that the zoom participant on the windows sdk is there a way to grant the host the permission to mute/unmute the participants in the meeting?


The host should have ability to mute participants. Are you seeing different in your meeting ?
