If you're working in the same physical location as one of your teammates and you both join a Tandem call, turning on this setting prevents both of you from hearing each other's Tandem audio stream which would be redundant.

This improves the listening experience for both of you, but if you're sitting next to each other know that remote teammates will likely hear an echo due to your voice being picked up by both of your microphones. To combat this, you can either share a computer OR keep yourselves muted and use the space bar to "push to talk" when you wish to speak. If you take the latter approach, just make sure the Tandem app is is in focus or pushing the space bar won't unmute you.
