Troubleshooting for iOS:

Enable the microphone and camera for IOS 13+

If you are still unable to see yourself in the video feed, you may need to try a few things in the following order:

  1. Restart the Safari browser app
  2. Confirm that your camera is not broken. We recommend trying your camera with FaceTime.
  3. Make sure there is nothing blocking the camera and is clean of any dirt or smudges

On iOS 13 and up, you can also select the camera and microphone to be enabled by default.

  1. Go to Settings on your device
  2. Scroll down and open Safari tab
  3. Ensure Camera & Microphone are set to Allow
  4. Ensure Request Desktop Site option is turned off

Troubleshooting for Android:

Enable the camera for Chrome on Android

To change settings for all sites:

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Chrome app.
  2. To the right of the address bar, tap “MoreSettings”.
  3. Under "Advanced," tap Site settings.
  4. Tap the permission you want to update.

To change settings for a specific site:

You can allow or block permissions for a specific site. The site will use its settings instead of the default settings.

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Chrome app.
  2. Go to a website.
  3. To the right of the address bar, tap “MoreInfo” .
  4. Tap Site settings.
  5. To make a change, under "Permissions," tap a setting. If you don't see a "Permissions" section, the site doesn't have any specific permissions.

Can’t Hear Patients?

  1. Make sure volume on speakers is turned on and not muted. Also be sure to make sure the correct audio device is selected. See below on how to change settings.

  2. If patients are using headphones please ensure they are plugged in and not muted. If they are not using headphones please ask them to turn Bluetooth off. Disable Airplay as well.

If this doesn’t work - Use Firefox mobile on Android only
