        You can test your microphone and camera in your Meetings list, once you are logged in to your b2match profile. In order to do this, you need to click the blue Camera and microphone test and follow the instructions.

        If there are issues, the system will indicate the browser's documentation's regarding the microphone and camera usage

        Additionally, you can do the following checks:

        • test your microphone with other apps, such as Google Meet, Skype, Zoom, etc. 
        • run Twilio's network test, which will start an automatic diagnosis to check if Twilio has permission to use your microphone and camera
          •  Twilio is the name of the software we use for online meetings 

        Happy matchmaking!
