Perhaps you have more questions? 🤔
What browsers are compatible with videoconferencing? Videoconferencing is available on all recent browsers supporting WebRTC technology. This is the case for Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. However, please make sure to update your browser: a version that is too old will prevent your video calls from working properly.
I'm experiencing slowdowns or blackouts, what can I do?
Turn off your camera to reduce the flow of data in transit.
Turn off your microphone if you don't need to speak.
Leave and return to the call.
Check your Internet connection.
What are the recommended equipment and connection? For optimal use, we recommend that you have update your browsers and a fresh computer or phone. For a better comfort, we recommend a headset as well as a microphone and a good Internet connection (fiber optic type).
