Occasional audio problems with Zoom

I’m on Manjaro Plasma with Linux kernel 5.9-MANJARO.
Occasionally when starting Zoom, I cannot hear meeting audio.
Normally (90-95% of the time) Zoom works fine, but in some cases (for what reasons I can’t tell) it fails.
When I go into audio settings, or press the Test audio button, or try to switch speakers, it hangs for 10-20 seconds, and then fails anyways. (I only have one speaker, so that’s not the issue here.)
How would I go about fixing or further troubleshooting this?
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: fixed some typos; also, I’m getting zoom from the AUR package “zoom”.
