Note: You cannot join a conference until the conference host has started the conference.

 

Join the Audio

Join the Audio

Before joining a conference, you will be asked how you want to join the conference audio: via microphone or listen only. Listen Only allows users to quickly join the conference as a listener only (no microphone check). You will be able to change your audio preference once you've joined the conference.

It is recommended that you use a headset with a microphone for the best audio experience. To ensure your audio is working correctly, complete the private audio echo test.

If you need help with your hardware, click the Question Mark icon [3].
