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!  

The Swivl Integrated Audio Setup will work for Swivl-compatible devices (both iOS and Android) and streaming services (e.g. Zoom, MS Teams, Google Meet, Webex, other). The procedure may vary slightly based on streaming services.

 

 

Compatibility

 

Integrated Audio setup is mostly used with Zoom, MS Teams, Google Meet, and Webex. However, you can still try setting up Integrated Audio with other video conferencing services as long as they have a mobile app which can be started from the mobile device connected to Swivl Robot.
