Just to be clear, echo suppression is not the same as echo

In the latter, the output of the speaker is inverted and adaptively
added to the mic input so as to cancel out acoustic coupling.

Echo suppression simply tries to detect when you are silent (ie.
listening to the other party), and mutes the mic input.  When you speak
it unmutes the input.
