1. A system for reducing audio feedback comprising:
one or more processors; and
one or more machine-readable media including instructions stored therein which, when executed by the one or more processors, cause the system to:
detect that a triggering event has occurred in connection with a first device;
determine, based at least on detection of the triggering event, that the first device is a candidate for joining an upcoming or ongoing communication session;
receive a first indication that the first device received a first signal, thereby determining that the first device is in an auditory range of a second device; and
automatically cause audio signals associated with at least a first audio component of the first device to be excluded from the communication session.
