4. Select the Quick Settings panel to open it. Here, you will find various options and settings.

5. Look for the microphone icon in the Quick Settings panel. It typically appears as a small microphone symbol. Select this icon to access the microphone settings.

6. In the microphone settings, you can choose to mute or unmute your microphone. This allows you to control whether your voice is transmitted or not during VR experiences or when using communication features in games or apps.

7. If you want to mute your microphone, select the mute option. This will prevent your voice from being transmitted to others.
