Once you’ve entered, you will be asked to choose your name and avatar, both of which will be visible to others in the virtual room. We recommend you use your real name to help others identify you. To use an off-the-shelf avatar, click "Browse Avatars" and click your desired choice.

Click "Enter on Screen" (or "Connect VR Headset" for VR headset users). You will then be asked to grant mic permissions. To grant mic permissions, click "Allow", (Clicking "Block" will prevent you from using your microphone to communicate with others in the room) then click "Next". If you have multiple microphones, this screen will allow you to choose which one to use. If you don’t know what to select, simply continue with Default. If your microphone is working, you should see a blue level indicator inside the microphone icon when you speak. Click the speaker to test your speakers or headphones. When you are done, click "Enter Now".
