Switch your audio device during a Lync Meeting or call

Sometimes you may need to switch to a different audio device in the middle of a Lync Meeting or call if your current device isn't working.

If you have a second device connected, you can easily switch to it without leaving the conversation. If you don't have another device connected, see Set up and test Lync audio.

Switch to a different audio device

  1. Point to the Phone/Mic button Screenshot of mic and phone for audio controls  in a meeting in your Lync Meeting or call.

  2. Click the DEVICES tab, and then select the device you want.

    Lync switches to the new device without interrupting your conversation.

    Tip: If you have a desk phone attached to your computer and want to switch your audio to it, you can just pick up the receiver or press the speaker button.
