    Hi Guys.

    I have been making calls using my iMac 5k, using the "call on other devices" feature on the iPhone.
    Works flawlessly and i love it, except one thing.

    I have been told the recipient of the call can hear an echo of themselves.
    I presume this is because the iMac speakers are repeating with a slight delay (understandable).

    Is there a way to fix this? It does not happen over Facetime.

    Thanks!

    I've had the same issue with the non-retina iMac. There doesn't seem to be a way to fix it, so I just stopped using it.

    yeaaaa... thats a great temporary fix. Shouldnt it be pretty easy to fix considering they do it with facetime?

    I have this issue all the time, even on Facetime calls.
    I think the iMac (mine is a Late 2013 27'') noise cancelling works very poorly to be honest.

    I've only done this once or twice, but I do think there was an echo where people complained. I'm not sure, but the next time I take a call on my iMac, I'll be sure to ask about the call quality.
