Choose microphone and camera settings

Select the video camera icon toward the top to activate video. You’re device might prompt you to allow the use of your camera; allow it if you want to be seen by others in the meeting.

You will also notice that next to your name is a microphone icon. You can use this to mute your own microphone. You cannot mute others’ microphones.

Additional notes

If you are using multiple devices in the same area, please mute your microphone on all but one device so as to avoid feedback. This option is available both as you’re joining the meeting and during the meeting (by clicking the microphone icon next to your name).

Regardless of what type of device you are using, try to close all your other windows and/or apps. This will help to keep your video and audio as clear as possible during the meeting.
