Chrome is the best browser to use with Collaborate with Firefox as a secondary recommendation. Other browsers such as Safari and Edge will work with Collaborate but they don’t support all of the WebRTC features that are utilized in Collaborate. Whatever your browser, we recommend updating the most recently released version.

The strength of your connection is key to a good experience in Collaborate. A hard-wired connection is preferred, but a strong wireless connection will work as well. Good positioning close to a strong, consistent wireless connection is key.

Users should close all other applications on their computer except Collaborate. This is especially true of other streaming services (Spotify, Netflix, Pandora, YouTube Etc.) Streaming these while in Collaborate or having multiple applications open can degrade the experience dramatically.
