Today I wanted to tell you about using audio and video in Sametime meetings that open in a web browser.
With Sametime 8.5.2, meeting rooms that open in a web browser now have many of the same audio and video features as do meeting rooms that open in a Sametime window. This means that people who join meetings from outside your company, or people who don't have the Sametime client, can participate in audio/video calls.
If your company has these capabilities, when you are in a meeting room that opens in a web browser, you can use the call icons under the Voice and Video area of the meeting room to call in to your meeting and then perform call-related actions.
For example, here's what you might see under Voice and Video if you are the room owner or a room manager; click the Green phone icon to start the call.
And, here's what you might see after the call has
started - icons to hang up the call, put the the call on mute and so much more:
Note: The specific call icons that the meeting room owner sees depends on the call capabilities you have and whether or not you are the meeting room owner.
