Using Audio

  • 1Telephone or Mic & Speakers.

    Some attendees will want to call in. Some will want to use their computer’s built-in audio. You can accommodate both.
  • 2Use the Audio PIN when calling.

    The Audio PIN allows GoToMeeting to identify speakers who are calling in from a phone. This allows you to see who is speaking and mute/unmute attendees.
Integrated audio allows attendees to choose the audio option they prefer – at no extra cost to you. When scheduling a meeting, provide both options for maximum flexibility.

    Go to the Preferences window and click Webcam to preview your webcam feed before sharing with attendees.
