RingCentral is allowing Online Presenters to use a free RingCentral Meetings account for its meetings. RingCentral has a technology partnership with Zoom, so those of you who have used Zoom for other online meetings will find it very familiar. The main distinction of the RingCentral version is how it integrates with other RingCentral products.
One of the most important things to know for proper etiquette with any audio or video conference tool is how to mute yourself when there is background noise at your location or any sort of problem with feedback or an echo on the line. With video, you may also have occasion to want to turn your camera off.
Here is where to find those controls on the desktop and mobile clients for RingCentral Meetings.
The online meeting controls appear at the bottom of the screen. If you don’t see them, wiggle your mouse around at the bottom of the screen, and they should appear.
You can mute and unmute yourself by clicking on the microphone icon. The video on/off icon is right next to it.
Or use the following shortcuts:
- Alt + A : Mute or Unmute
- Shift + Command + A: Mute or Unmute
The mobile app is pretty similar, with mute / unmute and camera on / off buttons in the lower right of the screen.
Here is what that looks like on Android.
