- Don’t forget to place the camera at the same level as TV. Some of the users forgot to place a camera at the same level of TV which leads to face cutouts while attaining the meetings and looks like you are focusing on something else rather than meeting.
- Use wireless headphones or earphones for a hand-free conference.
