Audio echo usually is the result of someone's mic being too close to speakers. If you hear echo, please have each person in the room mute and then one by one unmute until you discover which mic is causing the problem. Then have that user switch mic location relative to speakers OR switch to headphones.
If you are in a room with audio screensharing and/or cowatching videos, it is imperative that all users wear headphones.
- Echo cancellation will not work effectively on the audio played in screenshares or cowatched videos — the only way to eliminate this echo is to have everyone wear headphones.
- The alternative is to have all users mute audio from the media and have one user (not wearing headphones) play the audio with mic on. Other users will hear the audio through that user's mic; however, it is important to note there will be severe audio lag—almost everyone in the room will see the video BEFORE hearing any audio
