The mute button on the iPad may also be toggled on; some apps make a noise even if mute is turned on this way. This is the small slide switch on the side of the device, next to the volume icons.

If you can see the orange dot on the slide side switch, mute is turned on, so slide the switch to turn off. When doing so you should see the follow icon appear on the screen:

Another way to check if your device is muted, or if your device does not have a side switch, is to open the Control Centre by swiping down from the top right corner of your screen whilst Grid for iPad or Grid Player is open.

If the app is currently muted you will see the icon above in your volume bar (right side of the control centre).
