COVID-19 has led to an increase in the number of video call meetings. Some meetings may be the first time you've ever had the opportunity to talk to someone you've never met in person via videocall. It can be more difficult to communicate with them than in person, as their expressions and moods may not be conveyed as well as in person.

Video Call Settings

Testing audio and video is essential before you begin connecting. Can't hear the audio or see the video when you connect, it’s not only stressful for the person on the other end of the line, but it can also cause the meeting to be canceled. Be sure to test your video settings

How To Avoid And Fix Video Issues

Is The Microphone Working?

First, we need to make sure that the microphone is working properly. You can test it from each app, but you can easily test the microphone from this site. If the waveforms are working properly when you speak to it after allowing the microphone from the browser, then it's a success.

Also, make sure that you can't hear any noise around you. Try to avoid crowded or noisy spaces and start the video call in a private room where there is no sound.

Video Is Okay?

The next step is video once the microphone test is complete. The same website can be used to test the video as well. If you grant access in the top left corner of your browser, you will see your face as he or she will see it.

The video should also make sure that there are no inappropriate background objects around you. With Zoom, you can use the virtual background.

How To Introduce Yourself

Now let's go over what to do when talking to a new person on a video call.

Don't ramble on.

It's hard to know how they'll react, and with video calls, you may talk for too long. Just because they are muted doesn't mean it's OK for you to keep talking. It is not necessary to explain your work and experience in your initial introduction. As much as possible, try to keep it brief and keep it to the bare minimum information in about a minute.

Purpose of the Videocall.

When it comes to a free video call, the talk can go on and on without purpose. When you introduce yourself at the beginning of the call, you should specify a brief agenda of what you will be talking about. In a limited amount of time, coming to a conclusion will be the key to the video call.

Know your partner's information in advance.

Although not limited to video calls, it is a good idea to be well-informed about the person you are talking to. Not only will you be able to make a good impression on the other person when the conversation begins, but you will also be able to make appropriate suggestions to move the discussion forward.
