Meeting With Someone Who’s Never Used join.me? Send Them This Article!
Hey there! If you’ve found your way here chances are you’ve probably been invited to a meeting taking place through join.me, a simple and pretty cool (if we do say so ourselves) web conferencing tool.
We promise we’ve designed join.me to be super easy to use, but even so we wanted to walk you through a couple of the most important things to know about attending your first meeting to make sure it’s a success.
So whether you’re about to use join.me for it’s great audio, video, screen sharing, or a bit of everything, let’s get you started!
There are three easy ways to enter a join.me meeting:
Once you’re at the meeting entrance page type in your name then click “knock” to let the presenter know you’ve arrived. No secret handshake or code word required.
Once you’ve entered the meeting, look at the top of your screen for the join.me toolbar. The join.me toolbar is your go-to place for settings related to audio, video, participants, chat, and more.
We’re betting there’s a good chance you’ll need to speak during your meeting. Go to the toolbar and click the phone button to find the audio options. You can either dial in from a phone using a local telephone number or e VoIP audio to speak through your computer’s microphone. For the best quality, use a headset or earbuds to reduce background noise!
If you want to turn on the video feature to display yourself to other meeting attendees, a simple click of the bubble with your name in it will do the trick.
Not sure if you’re ready for your closeup? Don’t worry! You’ll have a chance to preview your camera view before being seen by anyone else in the meeting. Looking good? Time to go live.
If the meeting also has a screen share, you can move the video bubbles around on the screen or even hide them to maximize your viewing space.
Every meeting must come to an end, and if it’s time for you to exit, it’s simple to do.
Click the “…” button on the tool bar and choose “exit this meeting.”
But don’t be a stranger. We hope you’ll come back and see us again sometime!
