Adjust Mic Settings on Android

If your Android device has its microphone sensitivity too low or too high, check to see if another app is using the mic, which can change its behavior.

Android devices do not have a specific way to adjust audio input level for the built-in mic.
The links below have information on connecting external microphones.

Advanced: Check if other apps are changing the microphone

Third-party Android apps can change the behavior of the microphone. Follow the steps below to check which apps have permission to change the microphone.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap Apps.
  3. Scroll to Permissions.
  4. Tap Microphone.
  5. Allow or Deny microphone access to third-party apps as needed.
  6. Restart the device and check the input volume level.
A Host or Producer can adjust a participant's output volume to balance the sound during the live call, but this does not change the audio signal that is recorded.
