    ...meaning, to jam together in real time. There's 4 of us and we started with Google Duo. The video was ok but the audio was chopped up, ie slight delays so you couldn't play music together. Can anyone recommend an alternate program, free of course, that works smoothly? Thx.

    There really aren't any. Network lag will always kill you and the network traffic load has nearly doubled in the last two weeks. It is far more likely to increase than decrease for the foreseeable future.

    Musicians here (Washington DC) are using an app called Jamulus. They are reporting the lag is 60 ms and say that is tolerable. A lot of the musicians here are IT in real life and have access to a lot of resources/expertise in this area.

    Houseparty, zoom ..etc..go to meeting
    I think zoom free first 45 minutes

    The trick is getting your vol right for other members..and ya..the sync issue

    Kids are zooming for school. The lag is significant enough to make playing in time impossible.

    Talk about a game-changer: solving this latency issue would be one.
