Automatically joining meetings with computer audio

Last Updated:

You can choose to automatically join meetings with computer audio without displaying a prompt on how you want to join the audio each time. If you always connect to Zoom using your computer’s speaker and microphone, this setting expedites the process of joining a new meeting or event because you won't have to repeatedly authorize Zoom access to your computer's speaker and mic for each meeting.

However, you may want to disable this feature if you want to change your Zoom audio type, such as telephone, in the future. Learn more about audio types.
