Set Up Your PauseMe MS Teams

Set up Instructions for PauseMe Microsoft Teams

  • Ensure you’ve charged your PauseMe for 30 minutes before the first use. 
  • Turn on your laptop– make sure you’re using a laptop that’s compatible with the button! 
  • Open Bluetooth settings so that your machine is searching for Bluetooth devices (for macs it appears automatically when you are in the Bluetooth settings, for most windows machines you will click add device in your Bluetooth settings to get to the search mode)
  • Press and hold the mute key on the PauseMe for 3 seconds while it is searching  (Note: after this step you may see red flashes or no lights depending on what operating system you are running. That’s perfectly expected- just wait a few seconds and you will see the button in your Bluetooth settings and be able to pair!)
  • You will see “PauseMe Button-MS” appear in your Bluetooth settings after a few sections
  • Click connect on your machine. And then click done. 
  • Your PauseMe is paired and ready to use on Microsoft Teams! (Note: For some machines, the lights will show up only once you’re actually in teams). 

Using the PauseMe MS Teams

The most important part of using a PauseMe MS Teams is to make sure you are running a supported version of MS Teams on a supported laptop. You can check our compatibility guide in the product images for help!

Additionally,  your MS Teams meeting must be the active window/in focus. The PauseMe works with MS Teams software so if another window is in focus, it won’t work. 

Once your Microsoft Teams meeting is the active screen you can use the below controls to use it!

  • Mute/Unmute: Click the mute button (the one with the microphone icon)
  • Hide/Show video: Click the video button (the one with the camera icon)
  • Turn on: Make sure the device is charged. Press down and hold the MUTE button for 3 seconds
  • Turn off:  Press down and hold the Mute button for 3 seconds (you will see both lights turn off)
