Mute all participants microphones at once
Please , if someone is the host in "Meet Now", it would be great to have the option to mute all participants at once until you want them to talk. It's annoying to give a speech or a class and to have particpants permanently turning on their microphones and interrupting.

The moderator should be able mute all participants and then, like Zoom, request someone unmute if they wish to allow them to speak. With the hand raise function, this can be very effective for moderated larger, diverse groups. A moderated group where everyone can interrupt is not so useful for a variety of applications.
Mute all participants as they enter to the call as Zoom or Free conference call does
If i have to mute a person or group i have click and go inside and mute them in chat option. Instead which dont you give a option in right click on the name of the chat and do mute . By default it should all chat msgs until unless i go inside the chat settings and do changse.
Same happnd to me I am also a teacher and same instance happend with me. If this continue then sorry to say I and many of us will stop using ur app.
I have been using Skype for teaching online. There are many participants per group and we use video calls.
It is a shame that Skype does not have the option for admins only (group creators) to be the only ones to control other people's microphones, group chat box and removing other participants.
It has happened on numerous occasions that participants have been muting other people's mics, have removed them from group etc.
This is really frustrating.
Why can't there be an option that only the administrator can control everything and everyone?
There should be an option where I can mute a person during a group video call in such a way that I am the only one who cannot listen to them while rest of the participants can.

During conference calls, invariably someone 'forgets they are on mute' or has an issue with the mute button, causing wasted time and dead air. Could skype alert with a chime/screen alert when it detects voices while on mute to notify the user that they are muted and not communicating with the conference call?

In group calls, only the person initiating the call (using /golive command) can mute others, and there is no way to turn off others' video. This can be disruptive, particularly on large group calls. Would you please build in functionality for group admins to mute participants in a group call and to turn off participants' video in a group call?
please add "mute" to group conversations - see similar whatsapp feature
