For desktop computers (PC or Mac): The image below is the screen you will see when you enter a meeting. Take a moment to check your settings. Check to make sure your camera is on, as well as computer audio, and your microphone. The toggle should appear like these below.  You may now click “Join Now” to enter the meeting.  

For mobile devices: The image below is the screen you will see when you enter a meeting. You can see in this example below the user has their video and microphone turned off. Tap the camera and the microphone icons to turn them on.  You may now click “Join Now” to enter the meeting.
