Placing a Video Call

Adding Video

If you have a camera, you can click Start Video to add video to an established call. When you add video, the
other party may (or may not) start sending their video to you.

sending your own video, if desired (and assuming you have a camera) by clicking Start Video on the call panel.

Click Stop Video on the call panel or close the video window to pause sending your video.

Click Start Video to resume sending your video; the video window will open.
