Hi has anyone got any advice on this app? I know I have to click on the link sent but I can't hear anyone. My volume is on high,  also in Tai chi classes I want to see just the instructor not everyone else. What am I missing? Couldn't see a mute/ unmute sign either. Got so annoyed with it I left the class. Anything anyone can help me with? Thank you.

    If you're on a tablet you need to press he centre of the screen so the options at the bottom pop up.? 

    Sometimes you flick through the vewi settings and sometimes you click a menu..... Hmmmm wonder if there's any tutorials onlinr? 

    I'd recomend having a few zoom calls with friends and having a practise as no, I don't think it's obvious to be honest. I think what's tricky for me is that it's different on laptop to tablet and to phone... I had a call where my laptop failed and I went onto my phone was like 'what?!'... 

    But.... Had a bit of practise now and it's much easier. 

    Zoom (Teams can go cook itself frankly) has enabled me to do so much that I wouldn't have been able to do such as join committees, be a trustee on two boards, do training and alsorts online... So worth any latie ce we can scrape together I think.
    Best of luck and if you find the answers do pass them on! ??

    Yeah you can mute other members' audio, and turn off their cameras I think.. For some reason my Taekwondo instructor mutes me every lesson.

    @MrAllen1976 that made me chuckle. I'm not sure if I get muted... I hope so to be honest. I do get a little testy when I can't get it right. ?
