Audio troubleshooting

The most common culprit is that the wrong audio mode was selected in the GoToWebinar app.

When you are in a session, you are able to specify which audio mode you use to connect to the audio conference (depending on which modes the organiser made available). It's possible that the default mode you joined with is not the one you want, and that you need to manually switch it.

  • If you want to connect with your mic and speakers, make sure Computer Mode or Internet Mode is selected.
  • If you want to connect with your telephone, make sure Phone Mode is selected
