Congratulations! You’ve been invited to join a Socio Streaming broadcast as a speaker. Follow this guide and you’ll be setting yourself up to win.

Before the broadcast

Make sure you have the following:

  • A laptop or desktop with a webcam and mic.

  • A recent version of Chrome or Firefox.

  • A strong internet connection. Just like Skype, you must have a strong internet connection for it to work well. If possible, connect to your router with an ethernet cable instead of using WiFi.

  • We recommend wearing earbuds or headphones to prevent audio echoes.

If you don’t have a laptop or desktop, then you can join on your phone. But the experience is usually best on a laptop/desktop. On Android, we recommend the Chrome browser. On iOS, you must use Safari.

Joining the broadcast

When the time comes, follow these steps to enter the broadcast studio:

  1. The host should provide you with a link before the show. Click the link and you’ll be taken to their broadcast studio.

  2. Allow Socio Streaming access to your camera and mic.

  3. Make sure you have the correct camera and mic selected. You can also Turn Echo cancellation and Noise suppression off.

  4. Enter a display name. Use your actual name or the name of your brand. Then enter the studio.

The host will see that you’ve arrived in the studio. You won’t be part of the broadcast until the host decides to add you in. While you're waiting, you can click the 3 dot icon next to your name above your video preview, and change your avatar. This is the image that gets displayed when you're on-stage, but your video is muted.

When the host adds you to the stream, everyone will be able to see and hear you. This is your time to shine!

Remember, the host asked you to join because they want to hear what you have to say. Have fun!
