UC, Lync 2013, Use Audio in a Lync 2013 Meeting
On this page, you can learn how to select among your audio options in Lync 2013.
NOTE: In order to make full use of Skype for Business at Illinois' various services, you must use a device certified for Skype for Business. For recommendations, see Skype for Business, Devices and Equipment .
WARNING: If you choose a device that is NOT on the Equipment for UC at Illinois list, it may violate campus policy. All campus-owned computing equipment bought after January 1, 2012 that will be used to make phone calls must be able to support 9-1-1 services as provided by the campus VoIP solution.
When you join a Lync meeting you can decide which type of audio to use and depending on your choice, you’ll have different options and audio controls.
If you’re using computer audio (mic and speakers), pause on the phone / mic icon in the meeting to access the controls:
- Click Mute if you’re not speaking.
- To put the call on hold, click Hold Call.
- To change your audio device, click the Devices tab, and pick the device you want.
- Click the Transfer Call tab, and choose one of the numbers to transfer the call to.
For example, if you need to leave your office, but want to stay in the meeting, you can transfer the audio to your cell phone and continue listening to the meeting.
- Use the Dial Pad tab to interact with the phone systems, such as entering a code, when you call your voice mailbox.
TIP: To quickly mute your audio, just click the Microphone icon.
If you used the Call me feature (Lync calls you), or dialed in to the meeting audio with a phone, press *1 on your phone key pad to access the meeting help system. You can control your audio with the touch-tone commands, such as mute, unmute, and other commands.
