Test that the video room works on your device by clicking Join Meeting from one of your scheduled meetings.

You can also familiarize yourself with these features:

Video and Audio

The first time you enter a CF+ Whereby video room your browser prompts you to allow camera and microphone permissions.

After you allow permissions, you will see a preview screen (second image above), where you can control your microphone, camera, and see what your camera is currently showing.

Virtual Background

The preview screen is also where you can choose a virtual background. To the left of the camera and microphone icons in the center of the screen, there's an icon of a person on a dotted pattern. Click it to choose your virtual background option:

Here's a closer look at the preset available backgrounds:

You can also upload your own image:

If you are already in the video room, you can still set a virtual background by navigating to the "Gear" button in the top right of the video screen.

General Features

The screenshot below is what you see in the video room, compared to the preview screen. The control panel is at the bottom of the screen with quick access to turning your camera on/off, muting/unmuting, sharing your screen, opening the chat, viewing the people in the room, and leaving the room.

Screen Sharing

On the control panel, clicking the "Share" button prompts you to decide:

  1. If you would like to share your WHOLE screen, or just a specific window, application, or browser.

  2. If you have multiple screens or monitors, you can choose which screen or monitor you want to share

Screen sharing is currently only available on computers, and not on mobile.

Chat Box

Use the chat box to send links, share contact information, or communicate in case of audio difficulties. Note: you can't attach or share files this way.

The open chat box appears on the right side of your screen.
