Adjusting Audio Settings During a Call
When a call is placed, a green bar will appear at the bottom of your browser window or the bottom of the Outreach extension. On the right-hand side of the bar, a microphone symbol will appear with a live measurement meter. The measurement meter provides live feedback on your microphone settings, so you can ensure prospects will be able to hear you.
Audio settings can be adjusted when a call is active by clicking the Settings symbol on the green call bar. Adjustments made to these settings are automatically saved and recalled for future calls within Outreach.
Note: These audio settings only apply to computer-based calls. If your primary device of communication is a phone, you will need to adjust the input/output settings based on the phone being used to make a call.
