1Set up your audio

When you first join, you'll be prompted to choose which audio method and camera you'd like to use and how you'll appear in the meeting upon launch.

Set up audio

2Mute and unmute

Control your audio using the Mic icon at the bottom of your screen. The icon will glow white when you are unmuted and others can hear you. You can also switch between Computer and Phone audio by selecting the Settings icon > Audio tab.

Note: Users are muted by default when they first join unless chosen otherwise in the Camera preview screen. If you are muted, select the Mic icon to umute yourself.

3Share your camera

You can start and stop sharing your camera using the Camera icon in the control panel.

Note: If you want to preview your camera first, select the Settings icon > Camera tab. You will instantly see a preview of your camera feed.

When multiple attendees are sharing their cameras, you can choose to see only the presenter's camera, the camera of person currently speaking, or no camera at all. Learn more.

4Share your screen

If the meeting organizer grants you presenter permissions, then you can share your screen or even a specific application with the other attendees in the meeting. Use the Share icon in the control panel to start and stop sharing your screen once you have presenter controls.

Note: You will not see the presenter controls unless you are made the presenter by an organizer or the current presenter. Once you are made presenter, the additional presenter controls will display on your screen.

Presenter mode splits the GoTo desktop app into two windows when you are screen sharing. Learn more.

  • Everyone - Send a message to all meeting attendees.
  • Organizer(s) only - Send a message only to organizers and co-organizers.
  • Presenter only - Send a message only to the current presenter.
  • Specific attendee - Send a private message to just that person.
