Why am I Hearing an Echo?

Audio "echo" can be caused by having a space open in multiple tabs/windows. Close all other tabs or windows.

Echo can also be caused by someone near you in the space who is unmuted & not wearing headphones, or a presenter who is broadcasting and un-muted. Move away from that guest in the Space, or politely ask them to mute their microphone when not speaking.
