I know that in running multiple Zoom classes in the past week or two - teaching people how to participate in and run Zoom meetings - that many people want to connect to a meeting using two different devices.
This is especially useful when you are doing a social gathering in this lockdown period, and several people from your household want to connect in using their own device, but perhaps in the same room as each other.
The problem is that echo echo echo that you get if more than one device is connected in the same room.
Here's the solution.
For computers, turning off your microphone in Zoom seems to do the trick. Then, the other device's microphone can handle the audio (as long as it's not too far from you).
But doing the same on an iPad still leaves you with an echo problem!
If you decide that your iPad can be in charge of the microphone, on the computer you can click the 'up-arrow' on the right of the microphone option (bottom left) and choose Leave Computer Audio.
On the iPad (or iPhone), tap the More ... option (top right on iPad, bottom right on iPhone) and choose Disconnect Audio.
Then, enjoy your meeting with the echo echo echo!
