It is common to hear an echo if you are not using headphones. For the best experience, it is strongly recommend always using a headset or headphones.
Below is a list of things that you could also try to reduce echo:
- Reduce the volume of your speakers.
- Reduce the sensitivity of microphone. This will require a change in settings via Control Panel (for PM) or System Preferences (Mac).
To determine the cause of echo, you could try the following:
- Rejoin the session from a different computer. If the echo has reduced, then there is most likely an issue with the hardware on your previous computer.
- Create a new session, then join the session. If the echo has reduced, then there is an issue with this particular chat room caused by the other user. In this case, selective muting (muting a user when they are not talking) can help.
