Switch Audio Modes in Session

You can switch the audio mode you use to connect to the session while the session is in progress (i.e., switch from Computer/Internet mode to Phone mode or vice versa). This can be useful if you are having issues connecting with your current method. If you do not see either the Computer audio or Phone call options, then it's possible that the organizer disabaled the option for this session. If they used custom audio information, then you will see specific instructions from the organizer instead of the built-in audio options.

There are many ways to connect to a session. Switch among these audio modes during a session at any time.

Switch Audio Modes Using the Desktop App

  1. At the top of the Control Panel, expand the Audio tab.
  2. Use the radio buttons to select either Computer audio, Phone call, No audio. If you do not see either the Computer audio or Phone call options, then it's possible that the organizer disabled the option for this session. If they used custom audio information, then you will see specific instructions from the organizer instead of the built-in audio options.
