Before you enter a meeting, you see a screen that gives you time to check your audio and video settings before you select join now. On this screen you can:

  • switch between computer audio and phone audio
  • mute your microphone (so no one in the meeting can hear you)
  • mute your camera (so no one in the meeting can see you)
  • change the microphone, camera, and/or speakers that you use

Computer audio

If you choose to use computer audio, you will hear the meeting through your computer speakers or the headphones/headset that are connected to your computer.

To switch between the computer speakers and any connected headphones/headset, go to Audio & video settings.

Phone audio

If you choose to use phone audio instead of computer audio, a phone number and meeting ID are provided which you can use to dial in using a mobile or telephone. You still view the meeting on your computer.

Phone audio is useful if you do not have a microphone in your computer, the meeting room you are in uses phone audio with a video screen, or your network connection is unstable (for example, if you are joining from a moving car).

Audio & video settings

Here, you can change the microphone, camera, and/or speakers you want to use on your computer during the meeting.

To adjust your microphone levels, use the slider underneath Microphone. Increasing the level on the slider increases your transmitted volume.
