How to Mute Someone on FaceTime?

Unfortunately, there is no default way to mute someone on Facetime.

Facetime does not allow you to lower your volume all the way down, so no matter what you do, you will always hear the other person.

This is not a good thing as muting someone can be a handing thing in certain conditions. Many people have asked Apple to add this feature, and there are rumors that we will be able to mute someone in the next iOS update.

However, there are some methods to work around this problem.

1. Ask the Other Person to Mute Himself

You can ask the other person to mute himself when he is not speaking. This can be done by clicking on the mute button in the bottom left corner.

This will stop his audio from coming through to you.

2. Plug in Handsfree

Plug your handsfree into your phone, and don’t put the tips in your ears.

Also, make sure you lower your phone volume as much as possible, so no noise comes out of your handsfree. This will effectively mute the other person.

Does it Show when You Are Muted on FaceTime?

When you are muted on FaceTime, your microphone icon will have a line through it. This is to indicate that your microphone is turned off and the person you are speaking to will not be able to hear you.

You can still see and hear the other person, but they will not be able to hear you. If you unmute yourself, the line will disappear, and they will be able to hear you again.

While it is obvious to you that you are muted, the other person may not be aware.

For this reason, it is generally considered polite to let the other person know that you are muting yourself.

Otherwise, they may think there is a problem with the connection or that you are no longer interested in speaking with them.
