Users on camera
This article serves as a guide for participants to use the camera during calls. While InEvent provides the option to join calls using only audio and no camera, enabling video mode makes the interaction experience better.
How do I give InEvent access to my camera and microphone?
To be on camera, you will first need to give InEvent access to your camera and microphone. To learn how to do it when using Chrome (preferred browser) or macOS, click here.
Interacting during virtual activities
For example, participants can raise their hands if they want to be invited on stage. If the room host invites them, they should receive a video call request and after accepting the invitation, they will be able to speak and have their cameras on.

Using your camera when networking
Networking via Virtual Lobby

- 1x1 meetings with other participants: In the Virtual Lobby, all attendees can meet with other attendees at the moment or schedule a meeting for later.

- Group rooms: Attendees can create public or private group rooms at the Virtual Lobby. There, up to 17 people will be able to be on camera at the same time. To learn more about group rooms, click here.
- Speed networking: With the Speed Networking tool, participants will be able to engage in 1x1 meetings randomly assigned in the Virtual Lobby. Click here to learn more.
- Breakout rooms: You can have breakout rooms inside activities to leverage group work during online meetings. Once attendees join a breakout room, they will be able to be on camera along with other attendees. To learn more about breakout rooms, click here.
Networking via Mobile App
Participants can access the Networking tab from the app and have the same networking experiences as if they were connected to the web.
For example, they can invite other participants to a video call and access the group rooms available. For both cases, they will have to allow InEvent to use their camera. To see an example, click here.
