Mute Mode Explanation

Can someone please explain to me the Mute Mode Explanation? Today, I used lecture mode. However, none of the participants could hear anything. I tried to look online, but I could not find an explanation of the 3 options under the Mute Mode list.

Hello,

Below are instructions on how to use the host muting feature:

*5 Mute – Control whether or not participants are heard on the conference call.

Press *5 once to mute all participants. Participants can unmute themselves by pressing *6.

Press *5 again to mute all participants. Participants are NOT able to unmute themselves.

Press *5 again to return the conference to open conversation mode.

Note: By default, all lines are unmuted, allowing all participants to talk.
*6 Self Mute – Mute your individual line. Press *6 again to unmute the line.

Hello
(comments that help to understand it from the app perspective)

People can individually mute self. Host or group mute will not be overriding individual mutes.

  • Mute Conference: All participants will be muted but they will be able to unmute self
  • Lecture mode: All participants will be muted and they will not be able to unmute
  • Unmute Conference: All participants (if they did not mute self) will be unmuted

Please note that group mutes will not affect hosts.

Today, I used lecture mode. However, none of the participants could hear anything.

Most likely reason for this is that you called as a participant.

So does “Mute Conference” and “Lecture mode” not affect the host?
