“Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.” -Tony Robbins
Inspirational stuff, huh? Well today we’re going to overcome a fear together: The fear of computer audio. Fortunately this isn’t a widespread fear among Zoomers. Ninety-six percent (96%) of you use Zoom VoIP at least 75% of the time. But there are still you holdouts that call into Zoom meetings on their telephones for audio, even while joining via their computer for video. This is because they’re afraid their computer’s audio will be choppy or less reliable than the phone. This breaks our little Zoomie hearts because we know there is nothing to fear with Zoom computer audio!
