During Traditional Setup, you will hear remote student voices through
earbuds attached to the Primary Marker. Sound will come through the right earbud only. You will not be able to hear remote student audio through tablet speakers. 

For your convenience, we created a printable Step by Step Audio Setup Guide to help you with the right setup and steps - print the pages you need!


We recommend that your remote students follow
best practices for audio participation during the live stream. Following these guidelines will increase the clarity and volume of remote student audio during a live stream session.

Make sure your Robot firmware is up to date. Your app should notify you if you need a firmware update. Select "Update" to accept the firmware update. You can always check your firmware version in your Teams by Swivl app settings. Refer to the instructions here to update your firmware manually.



Live Stream Setup Steps

1. Connect your Android device to your Swivl Robot and turn on the Robot.



2. When prompted, click "ok" to allow Robot access.


3. Open the Teams app and turn on your Marker(s). 


4. Plug your earphones into the 3.5mm headphone jack on the Primary Marker. The Primary Marker is the teacher's Marker. Wear only the right earbud so you can hear remote students. (Tip: You can adjust the volume of the earphones by using the Primary Marker's "up" and "down" directional arrows. More Marker features here.)




5. In the Teams by Swivl app home screen and select either Zoom, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams. Swivl will remember what you selected the last time and default to that option the next time you open the app.




6. Once you are logged into your live stream app, start a new session or meeting. 

Enable the audio with the following steps:

Zoom - When prompted to join audio, tap "Wifi", after tap the mic icon and camera icon to enable audio and video.

  • Zoom can only be used in the Traditional Setup with Samsung Tab S5e, Samsung Tab S6, or Lenovo M10.


MS Teams - Tap the mic icon and camera icon to enable audio and video.


Google Meet - Tap the mic icon to enable audio.



You have achieved Traditional Setup using the Swivl Robot and mobile device. The teacher can hear remote students through a headset (earbuds+microphone) connected to the Primary Marker.

*Audio will only come through the right earbud. You will not be able to hear audio through tablet speakers.
