What a wonderful summary of Zoom meetings for people with all levels of familiarity with the program!

Have you ever had the problem of noisy feedback from one participant’s devices? I found it very disruptive, so I looked it up. Usually, it means they are using both their computer and a mobile device (phone or tablet), and the devices are too close to each other. Moving them apart will help with that.

Also, if a participant is echoing, they probably have audio turned on for both devices. Turning one off (typically, turning off the computer audio to use the phone) will solve that problem!
