Please refer to the checklists below to ensure that you're ready.
If you use Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Mac Safari as your standard browser already, simply click on the link shared with you by the meeting's organizer. If not, you'll need to download Chrome, Microsoft Edge or Mac Safari to utilize ROOM.
These are the recommended specs for all users (account holders and invitees), alike:
- ANDROID: Google Chrome 100 (Recommended: Google Chrome version 108)
- ANDROID: Microsoft Edge 100 (Recommended: Microsoft Edge version 108)
- MacOS X: Google Chrome 100 or Safari ver 15.5 (Recommended: Chrome ver 108, Safari 16)
- iOS: Google Chrome 100 or Safari ver 15.5 (Recommended: Google Chrome ver 108, Safari 16)
ROOM is designed to use most desktop's peripheral cameras and microphones, as well as most laptop's built-in cameras/speakers.
You will need an account if you wish to invite others to your ROOM meeting. If you are invited to someone else's ROOM, you can simply join through your Chrome, Edge or Safari browser without an account.
Sign up for ROOM at http://room3d.com/ and try it out for free if you'd like to send out meeting invitations, since only registered users can create meetings. If you like what you see, then consider subscribing to our new ROOM Founders' plan for a premium upgrade experience with great new features and amenities.
Once you've signed up for a free trail account, you'll be taken to ROOM's Dashboard page, from where you can browse through our collection of rooms and easily create a meeting by simply clicking on the "Copy Link" button by your chosen room's description. You don't even need to enter the room!
Incidentally, the Dashboard page is the initial page to which you'll be directed any time you log on in the future, as seen below. You can use its filters to narrow down the default selection to something more in line with what you need (filter by meeting attendee limit or by room type).
As a meeting organizer, you always have the option to explore any number of rooms via the Dashboard page before you make your selection. Any link that you make will create a room reserved especially for you that will remain active for 6 months.
These so called "persistent rooms" are often used to schedule regular (recurring) meetings for projects or study sessions where attendants need to gather over longer periods of time. But, you are not limited in any way by having a persistent room. In other words, you do not need to "deactivate" the room in any way in order to create other meetings at will, for any purpose.
In addition, an important thing to remember as a meeting organizer is that before you share that link (once it's copied to your clipboard), you need to include a short message about the desired date and time for the meeting, since these invitation links are not automatically entered into a scheduling app or calendar nor is any text automatically generated with a specific scheduling message. To share the link, paste it into an email, text app, or manually into your own calendar to send it our to your prospective guests.
