Are you tired of fumbling to unmute yourself during Zoom meetings? If so, then I have the tip for you this week—use the "Push to Talk" feature by holding the down spacebar.
The "Push to Talk" feature allows the user to remain muted throughout a Zoom meeting and instead of grabbing for your mouse to unmute yourself, you just hold down the spacebar when you want to be unmuted and talk. Your screen will show a message indicating that you are temporarily unmuted and the microphone will appear green when you talk. In order to take advantage of this feature, however, you will need to make sure you have it turned on in your settings.
To turn the "Push to Talk" feature on:
In the Zoom Desktop Client, click your profile picture, then click Settings.
Click the Audio tab.
Check the option Press and hold SPACE key to temporarily unmute yourself.
Note: The space bar works only when Zoom is your main window.
