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 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.

    Switch your audio device in Lync
