Hey @pileofrogs,

Thank you for reaching out about this. I looked into our documentation and saw that it’s not currently possible to mute/unmute via the API. As you also noted, this would be possible with the Web SDK. As a general rule of thumb, our APIs are for pre and post meeting actions only.

Feel free to submit a feature request at #feature-requests.
