Attendees are not allowed to turn on their Mics / Webcams by default. However, Admins (i.e Presenters / Moderators) can grant Mic / Webcam permissions to Attendees anytime during a live webinar.
Note: This feature can only be used if the Attendee has supported Devices connected to their system (microphone / webcam). The options will be missing if the Attendee does not have the supported devices connected to the system and if they are not using a Desktop/Laptop device.
We currently only support desktop browsers for using Microphones and Webcams with Demio. Attendees that wish to use their Mic / Webcam will need to join with a browser supported for Admins.
