Now is a good time to briefly review some settings for your desktop computer equipment.

We recommend leaving the Speaker & Microphone as Same as System and that you perform a test of your speaker and microphone to verify your equipment is properly working.

Video is another area you will want to verify, if you have a webcam hooked up to your computer. For some added fun there's a virtual background option that allows you to create a green screen type effect for your video broadcast.
