- Everyone in the same physical room as the host user should
*mute their computer microphones and computer speaker volume.*
- The host user is the exception.
The host user should NOT mute their computer microphone
and computer speakers UNLESS the host use is using a phone or speakerphone for audio.
- If the host user is using a phone or speakerphone for audio,
then the host indeed should mute their computer microphone and computer speakers.
Screen Freeze or Lag? Delayed Audio?

and/or shut down their video when they are not using it.
- All participants should close any open applications or browser tabs
or windows they are not using during the meeting.
- Closing non-essential apps
