Join a Training Online (Instant Join App)
The GoToTraining Instant Join App is a browser-based version of GoToTraining that can be run entirely online! Unlike when joining sessions with the desktop app, the Instant Join app does not require any downloads because it stays contained within your web browser. This can be especially beneficial for users who are having trouble installing the desktop app or are in locked-down environments that can't download software.
- You can get into session even faster than with the desktop app (great for when you're late joining!).
- If you have software-installation restrictions (e.g., using a company computer or net kiosk), you can still quickly and easily join sessions.
- You can easily switch to the full-featured desktop app if you want to use additional features.
Instant Join Features and Tools
- Join instantly without going through a download or installation.
- Connect to the audio conference using your computer's mic and speakers or by dialing via phone.
- View the presenter's shared screen.
- Mute and unmute yourself.
- Send chat messages to other attendees (either privately or to everyone).
- Raise your hand to get the organizer's attention.
Join a Session via Instant Join
- If you join from Google Chrome or if your operating system is not compatible with the desktop app, then you will automatically join the session using the Instant Join app.
- If you join from any other web browser, then the desktop app will automatically begin downloading and launch you into session.
See Web App Feature Comparison for more information.
Connect to Session Audio
The audio options that are available for you to connect to the audio conference will vary depending on what options the organizer set for the session (for example, they may have disabled some methods, or even provided their own conference call information).
See Connect to Audio (Web App) to learn more.
