How do I turn off the beeping sound when I tap mute/unmute in Zoom on iPhone?

The beep chime that activates when you mute and unmute in Zoom is actually part of iOS since iOS 15, so if you look around in Zoom settings to disable the beeping chime sound effect when muting or unmuting, you won’t find anything.

It turns out that, at the moment anyway, you can not disable the beeping chime sound effect when muting and unmuting on iPhone with iOS 15 or newer. Perhaps that will change eventually, but for now that’s the way it is.

Happy Zooming.
