Download and Install Mumble and Mumble-Server (aka Murmur)


Download the latest stable version of Mumble from the Official Website.
The installer will guide you through the installation and configuration of Mumble.

Alternatively you can download and run the latest MSI installer (mumble-1.x.x.msi; "winx64" for the 64-bit version) from the GitHub releases page.
Note: Releases that include the term "RC" are Release Candidates and therefore Test Versions.

For Windows 2000 see: Tips & Tricks

Mumble-Server (aka Murmur):
The Mumble-Installer includes an option to install the Mumble-Server.

Mac OS X

Download the latest stable version of Mumble from the Official Website.

Alternatively you can download the latest version from the: GitHub releases page.
Note: Releases that include the term "RC" are Release Candidates and therefore Test Versions.

In order to be able to use the Overlay it has to be installed separately.
To install it: launch Mumble, go into Mumble's settings -> Overlay section and you should see an option to install it.
The reason for the separate installation is that Mumble itself does not need administrative rights to install, but the overlay does.

Mumble-Server (aka Murmur):
You can download a static version of the Mumble-Server from the Official Website.


On the popular Linux distributions, Mumble should be available in the official repositories or third party repositories.
See the distribution sections below.
If not available, take a look at the snap- and flatpak-packages below.

You can also disable the autostart with systemd.
