Recently, the popular video-conferencing app, Zoom rolled out an update for Mac users to address a bug that causes the mic to remain active even after the meeting ends.
The company further acknowledges that the mic bug was encountered within the Mac devices that run on macOS Monterey. And, to resolve this bug, the Zoom version 5.9.3 has been rolled.
Since December, several users were reporting about this issue on Zoom’s community forum.
Talking about the issue, the video-conferencing giant says they have encountered a bug within the Zoom client for macOS. The bug causes orange indicator light to continually show even after the participant has left the meeting, call, or webinar. The orange indicator is a part of the privacy feature introduced in Monterey.
Additionally, the company says that the mic bug has been resolved with the 5.9.3 update and advises the users to install the update.
Though Zoom version 5.9.3 was rolled out for macOS on January 24, 2022, several users who were unaware of the update, to this date are still complaining about the mic bug on Zoom’s community forum.
If you are one of the users who doesn’t have automatic updates feature, we suggest that you check for the update manually by clicking your profile picture and then choose the Check for Updates option.
Back in 2020, Zoom was accused of misleading users about providing E2EE while it didn’t at that time. Now, the mic bug within the Zoom client for macOS certainly raised some eyebrows over privacy concerns.
