If you have missed the opportunity to allow eyeson to access your camera and microphone, have a look at the following three options for resolving this issue. Simply allow eyeson to access them and you do not have any troubles anymore for your follow-up video meetings & webinars.

Note: For the following screenshots, we used the Google Chrome Android browser. Other phone browsers and/or phones might look and work in a slightly different way.

Option 1

When you are on the eyeson meeting preview page, or after you have opened the invitation link in your phone browser, tap on the lock icon which is positioned next to your URL at the top left corner of your browser.

As you can see, your camera as well as your microphone are locked. To unlock them, tap on Camera and Microphone and choose Allow. Go back to your eyeson site and refresh it.

If the meeting link has expired, enter your meeting link again or ask your meeting host for a new invitation

Option 2

When you are on the eyeson meeting preview page, or after you have opened the invitation link in your phone browser, tap on the Settings icon (3 vertical dots) which is positioned in the top right corner of your browser.
