macOS High Sierra

Mute or change volume

There are several ways to control the volume of FaceTime audio or video calls and phone calls on your Mac.

Open FaceTime for me

  • Mute yourself: Move the pointer over the call window, then click the Mute button (or use the Touch Bar). You can still hear the other person on the call, but they won’t be able to hear you.

    To unmute yourself, click the Mute button again.

  • Change the volume of your microphone: Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Sound, click Input, then drag the “Input volume” slider.

    Open the Input pane of Sound preferences for me

  • Change the volume you hear: Change your computer’s volume. See Turn the volume up or down.
