  • 1280 x 720

Additional recommendations

  • Use a headset with microphone for improved sound quality and privacy
  • Use a USB echo-canceling speaker for meeting room environments

Firewall settings

  • For video calling (Voxeet)
    • To make sure we go through firewalls, we automatically switch from User Datagram Protocol (UDP) to Transmission Control Protocol (TCP; HTTPS).
    • If you are having a firewall problem, use the 443 port---this often solves the problem. If it does not solve the problem, please contact us.
    • Currently, video calling does not go through China's firewall system.
  • For presence detection (Google Firebase)
    • Open ports 5228, 5229, 5230 for Firebase communication.
    • Open communication at proxy level between the source server and following URLs:

      fcm.googleapis.com
      gcm-http.googleapis.com
      accounts.google.com
