The Secret Recipe For Audio

By Marcela Albertini
Customer Success Manager

Just like in any good recipe, there is always a key ingredient that makes all the difference when used right. I’m going to go ahead and say that in my cooking, that ingredient is 100% always bacon. Well is no different, our audio feature is just like bacon and in the right combination it’s just great! I am not trying to make you hungry but both can literally make life taste (and sound!) better if you know how to use it correctly.

Regardless if you are looking to provide a demo, share your screen or connect and collaborate with your team, audio conferencing is included for our customers at no extra charge. But we’ve got some options for you when it comes to what type of audio you use to join a call.

All users can dial in via VoIP through their computer. Our PRO and BUSINESS customers can also select from a long list of local numbers in over 50 countries around the world, And as of last week, customers can also choose to add a toll-free option in order to absorb the cost of the call so their customers, clients and prospects don’t need to pay a dime!

As soon as you start or join a meeting, the audio mode menu is displayed with all available options. If you missed the prompt, click the speaker icon. This will open up the audio mode menu. On the audio mode menu, click either Computer or Phone or if the meeting host has toll-free enabled you will see that as a third option.


Recipe for optimal audio:

  1. If you have a headset, use it – headsets pick up less background noise and help prevent echo and feedback. It also helps to drown out conversations around you so you can focus on the the meeting. If a headset isn’t available, try to find a quite spot to take the call.
  2. Turn off distractions. Make sure you turn off notifications with sound to prevent music, videos and other sources of noise that could interfere with your call.
  3. Pick your audio- If you are a remote worker and don’t want to drain your cell, VoIP is the way to go as long as you gave a strong internet connection. Local numbers are great if you aren’t paying for long-distance and want to be totally mobile with just your cell phone.
  4. Testing, 1, 2, 3. Not sure how your audio will sound? You can run an audio test under audio settings.
  5. Join the call! All participants join the same conference regardless of how they join: computer, local or toll-free phone number, mobile app.
