Please follow the instructions on the invitation mailed to you. For large parties, the Zoom app is used however since this is a smaller shower we are using another method. Please let me know of any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Download the Zoom Cloud app on your mobile device (tablet, iPad, or phone) before the shower. Go to your App or Play Store and search for Zoom. This should only take a few minutes.
If you plan to connect via desktop, it will automatically install when you click on the meeting link.
To join the shower on September 15th at 8pm EST, click here: a unique link will be provided for each shower.
You may need to enter Meeting ID: unique code(no spaces) and your name.
You do not have to login. Simply download the app, join the meeting, and enter Meeting ID unique code.
To join via phone only dial: unique phone number or international phone number.
That's it! I've included some more details below, if needed :)
If possible, try to use an iPad or computer. The screen on the mobile phone is small, however if you are going to use a mobile phone please hold the phone horizontally. Holding the phone horizontally will allow you to see as much as possible.
A good internet connection is most important. Try to stay near the router, if possible. If you exit the Zoom app (toggle to another screen), the reception gets choppy.
Make sure the volume is on and turned up.
Within Zoom, you can use Speaker View (only see the person speaking), or Gallery View (see everyone).
