In Hopin, you will be prompted to select your Microphone and Camera device so that people can hear and see you at the event, but if you are unable to select your options, it is probably because you need to give browser permissions for Hopin to access your devices.
If that doesn't work, be sure to give the browser permissions to access your camera and microphone.
Allow camera and microphone in a web browser
- Click on the padlock icon next to the URL
- Set Camera and Microphone to Allow
You can also check to see if Hopin has access to your devices by entering the following link to your Chrome browser URL field:
Under Permissions, locate Camera and Microphone. Hopin should be one of the approved sites.
- Click the video icon in the URL field
- Choose the Camera and Microphone to share
- Hit Allow for changes to take effect
Sometimes, third-party extensions can affect the experience by blocking some of the Hopin interface elements. That’s why we also recommend opening the event in Incognito mode (Ctrl+Shift+N) on Chrome or Private tab (Ctrl+Shift+P) on Firefox.
Turn on app permissions for your microphone and camera
To use your microphone with apps on Windows, you'll need to turn on some permissions in Microphone settings. Then, you'll need to check your app permissions if you want to use your microphone with apps.
