How to Turn Zoom Audio Notifications On/ Off


Zoom has a popular audio notification feature that tells you when a participant joins or leaves a assembly. This is especially useful when you find yourself waiting for someone, but it may be irritating when you find yourself a part of a large convention assembly or event and you constantly hear notifications as people come and go. The audio notification has a doorbell-like sound to provide the feeling of a real person ringing the bell at the back of a real door. And just like your house doorbell, there is way to turn the audio notifications off for your virtual Zoom assembly rooms.

The audio notification option on Zoom also comes with several customisations like choosing to play the sound for everyone or restrict it to hosts and co-hosts. There could also be an option to ask to record a user’s voice to use as notification when someone joins by phone

This feature is important for users who are waiting on someone and are doing other chores in the meanwhile. The audio tune serves as an alert that someone has entered the Zoom call, particularly useful when you find yourself not taking a look at the screen.
