- Maximize your WIFI connection.
- Working remotely? Limit other WIFI use in your household while in a Zoom meeting and try moving closer to your wifi router.
- Stop your video and mute your audio if you can. We encourage users to use their video features, however, if you're experiencing audio or video lag, stop the video and try without.
- Close other applications. Please take a moment to close everything down before your Zoom meeting begins.
- Don't share your screen if you don't have to as this uses much more bandwidth.
- Use cloud recording versus local recording.
- VPN can affect your bandwidth. Do not use Zoom over a VPN.
- Avoid using a wireless Bluetooth audio device. Many users reported audio quality issue when using their AirPods.
