What happens next?

Breeze tests your upload and download connection as the Cloud uses this, along with other information, to determine what resolution of video you should send and receive.

Breeze checks to see if there is a newer version available, if there is, it automatically downloads the new version and upgrades itself. In this case, Breeze restarts itself.

Breeze uses your default microphone and webcam. If you have problems with audio or video, refer to Troubleshooting.

Breeze now displays your home screen.
