  • Mute all: Mute all participants.

Echo detection warning

If Rooms detects an echo in your meeting’s audio, the host will receive a popup notification that indicates which participant’s microphone is causing the echo. Then the host will be given the option to mute that participant.
 
Participants will also be notified if their audio is causing an echo. They’ll have the option to mute their audio, or to fix the cause of the echo.
