Update on v22

The default setting is OFF. You can switch on the noise gate in the audio settings:
This is a new noise gate, that lowers your mic volume to 10% of its current value based on volume-level activity. If you haven't made a significant sound in few seconds, the noise gate kicks in, and will re-enable when a significant noise is detected. It will take about 300-ms for the volume to recover once the noise triggers it back on, which can be a small bit harsh/distracting at times.
The point of this feature is to allow guests who might be in a rather noisy room or who are unable to use echo cancellation to still engage with a chat, without them introducing feedback back into the room.
This is a very hard and aggressive noise filter, and a guest won't be audible to others in the room if others in the room are currently talking.
User feedback on this feature welcomed.
