Everyone is using a USB headset.
- Phone headsets sound awful.
- Music headphones pick up too much background noise.
Laptop audio picks up way too much background noise.
Everyone mutes their audio when they’re not speaking.
It reduces the overall background noise on the audio.
Everyone has joined from their own computer.
It’s difficult to hear remotely what’s going on in a room, typically the remote people get a worse experience than the people in the office.
Everyone has their video switched on.
Be brave and be the first person to switch the camera on.
We’re using a tool that works without a complex client installation (appear.in, Google Meet) so everyone is on time.
Everyone is actually listening so that when a question, they can answer.
Everyone is on WiFi.
Being on the receiving end of someone joining a video call on their phone’s mobile network is awful.
Everyone is in a quiet place.
Public transport isn’t the ideal place to take a business call.
Loud distractions (ping pong, music, people) ruin calls.
