Workaround for Google Hangouts with Macbook Air camera? When I try to use my late 2013 MBA (A1466) camera for Google Hangouts video chat, it more often than not won't work. Initially, FaceTime was the only app that could use the camera. Skype had an update recently that seems to have remedied the problem in its scope, but Hangouts is still borked.

The Mute button (a microphone icon with a diagonal line across) on Google Hangouts for iOS and Android has an odd appearance. So when you start a video chat, the microphone appears muted by default due to the slash symbol over it. The fact is that the mic is active and the person on the other end can hear you. Moreover, Hangouts doesn’t display a mute or unmute label on the screen when you enable or disable the microphone.

On the other hand, Hangouts displays a different icon to toggle the microphone and camera in its web interface.

The lack of uniform UI across different platforms can make Hangouts confusing for new users. To clear the confusion, let’s see how you can mute and unmute microphone in a voice or video call on Google Hangouts.

While you can only mute yourself on Hangouts, Meet lets you mute other people in a meeting as well. This feature comes handy if you’re hearing background noise and random voices from other people’s microphone during a video meeting.

Unlike Hangouts, Google Meet clearly indicates whenever you turn the microphone on or off.
