You can communicate with other Attendees using the 1-1 Video Call, regardless of your role in the Conference. Video Calls can be initiated either if you have or want to communicate through a chat message, or directly through a video call.
Initiating a 1-1 Video Call
Video Call can be reached from the top navigation bar of the 1-1 chat window.
The person you are connecting with will see a message that they have been invited to join a video conversation.
Upon clicking the Join button in an invite message, the Tech Check flow will be initiated in another tab. You have to Allow these settings to join the call.
Once the Check permissions flow is successful, the camera and microphone check will be displayed.
Click Join, and the video call session will open.
