Troubleshooting

If you encounter any issues during your Brevo video calls, here are some common solutions to try. If your problem persists, contact our support team.

I can't hear or see the participants, or they can't hear or see me
  • Click the lock icon in your browser search bar and check that Brevo Meetings has permission to access your microphone and speakers.

  • Go to your video call settings to ensure that you've selected the correct microphone and speakers for your audio input and output, and the correct camera for your video input.

  • If you've connected or reconnected a device during a video call, refresh the page and rejoin the call.

  • If you're using a webcam, make sure the privacy lock is disabled and the privacy cover is off; then rejoin the call.

The participants can see me, but they can't hear me
  • Check if the sound is enabled on your device. Refresh the page and rejoin the call when your settings are changed.

  • Check if you've selected the right device for your audio input. Refresh the page and rejoin the call when your settings are changed.

  • Check if you've selected the right device for your video input. Refresh the page and rejoin the call when your settings are changed.

  • If you're using a webcam, make sure the privacy lock is disabled and the privacy cover is off; then rejoin the call.

  • Check if there are any current file downloads or uploads in the background or on any other device in your network. You may want to pause or reduce the speed of any file downloads or uploads when video calling.

  • Check if your router is delivering a stable connection. You may want to bring your device nearer to your router to improve the connection quality.

The sound quality is bad
  • If you're using a portable microphone, move closer to the mic or increase the volume sensitivity to make it easier for others to hear you.

  • If you're using a phone or tablet, you can toggle the loudspeaker off to reduce background noise.

  • If there are a lot of echoes when participants hear you, try using a different room that has more insulation.

The video quality is bad
  • Switch to a different Wifi or 4G connection.

  • You can turn off your own video input to improve the overall connection quality.
