    Hi,

    I've been trying out FaceTime Audio lately, and I was told there were echoes at the other end. Anyone else got the similar issue ? I have Air 2013 13" Model.

    Thanks

    I would assume it's because you're not using headphones.

    The MBA's speaker and microphone are probably pretty close together and could result in feedback, particularly at louder volumes. Headphones would solve this but I bet this could also be improved with software feedback cancellation... something Apple is usually pretty good at it seems.

    Same problem here after the OS X 10.9.2 update on my Macbook Pro Retina 13 Late 2013 model!

    Any suggestions on how to solve this?

    Are you guys using external speakers? I run into this probably pretty frequently when I have my external speakers plugged in... but if I use the built in speaker or headphone, it usually disappears. Granted, this is with straight FaceTime, not FaceTime audio...
