How to use voice meetings most effectively
How to join a voice meeting
To join a voice meeting, click the Intercom icon at the right of the room toolbar. You'll be able to listen to the ongoing conversation and watch other participants video streams.
To start talking, click the Microphone icon.
Note! Use Virola settings to check your headphones and microphone before joining a meeting.
For as long as you have the Microphone icon enabled, your voice will be transmitted into the chat room. Make sure not to forget to disable it once the meeting is finished. The same is true for Video icon.
You can easily identify if your mic is on in one of the chat rooms by looking at your avatar in the top left corner of the Virola screen. It will be lit in pink to draw your attention. By scrolling down the list of rooms in your left pane, you will see in which of the rooms your microphone is enabled, it will be also lit in pink and the mic icon will be active.
How to monitor and switch between meetings
You can monitor ongoing meetings and switch between them. All chat rooms with ongoing meetings are marked with activated Headset, Microphone, Eye and Camera icons and counters so that you can check what's going on while listening to another meeting.
You can disconnect from listening to a meeting and connect to another one at any moment by clicking the Intercom icon off and on in respective chat rooms.
