How to use a Video Call Chat as a Host and Users

Here is how you do it as a host:

1. Open the virtual tour with the video chat plugin.
Sample tour:

2. Press the video call icon. Allow access to the camera and microphone.

3. Once you start a tour with the active video chat plugin, it will create a unique shareable URL. So only the people with that link can join the room and you can avoid having uninvited people in the meeting.

4. Copy the URL and share it with anyone you want to join the video call.

You have the option as a host to take control of the users' screens by using the share screen mode. Please keep in mind that this share screen mode only applies to the virtual tour screen.

How to use it as a visitor

1. Open the link from the host.

2. Press the video chat icon.

3. Allow access to camera and microphone.

4. Once it connects to your camera and microphone, you should be in the same screen with the host and other parties as shown in the example below.
