Best Practices for Using Zoom
Use a headset or your earbuds to improve the audio and to avoid feedback.
Mute yourself when you are not speaking. If you dial into a Zoom meeting via your mobile phone, please use the mute feature on your device. If you connected via the Zoom client or App, click "Mute" located in the lower left corner of the Zoom screen (icon of a microphone). When your microphone is muted you will see a red line through the microphone icon.
