Google Meet unusable in Qubes, even for audio only

I have tried to have audio only meetings on Google meet with a number of different ppl, but every time they say that the audio is too poor to hear what I am saying. I am using the built in microphone.

My laptop is an old Dell (Latitude E7470). But booting another distro off of a USB I was able to have a clear conversation: though I used Skype not Google Meet that time. So I believe the built in microphone is working fine.

From what I’ve read Qubes should be capable of high-quality communication, especially with audio only, yes?
