Tips for Video Calls

Use these tips when you're in a video call:
  • Check your video image to make sure it's clear, bright, and sharp.
  • Avoid bright lights or windows behind you. If the camera faces a window or bright lights, adjust the camera settings.
  • Avoid wearing bright colors, all-light or all-dark clothing, or busy patterns, such as small checks or narrow stripes. Pastels and muted colors look best on the screen.
  • Use natural gestures and speak in a natural tone without shouting.
  • Pause between sentences to allow for possible audio delay.
  • During a conference call, mute your microphone when not speaking.
  • Avoid tapping or rustling papers near the microphone.
