When MuteDeck does not recognize the call application, mostly because we don't support it yet, it falls back on the microphone input you're using. Mute visibility and control still works. 🤗

Why does it take a second or two to update?
MuteDeck is on a continuous loop to detect and find the status of Zoom. To balance the resources the software needs (CPU usage) and performance, we've put this loop on a 1-second delay. So, every second the call status gets updated, which can seem like a delay when you're paying attention to the ...
