How to lower the volume of Zoom when I want to focus on talking to my boothmate?
Sometimes you may want to silence Zoom when the participants are chatting and when you need to talk with your boothmate(s).
Because adjusting Zoom sound output volume will affect system level volume, you will need to use additional software to adjust the volume of individual apps.
My microphone gets muted when I mute myself in Zoom. How can I get around it?
There are a few headphones will sync button status with Zoom. You can disable this function in Zoom's settings under Settings > Audio by unchecking the box next to "Sync button on headset". See it highlighted in the image below:
Why am I hearing echo from my boothmate when I am testing Cymo Booth with Zoom?
Cymo Booth is designed to work with Zoom only when you are working in Zoom as an interpreter. If you are using Zoom as a participant, you will have two audio channels connected with your boothmate both in Zoom and in Cymo Booth, hense the "echo" effect.
Please rest assured that this will not happen if you have the correct interpreter setup in Zoom, because interpreters cannot hear each other in Zoom by default.
What's the maximum number of users allowed in a booth session?
Cymo Booth allows up to 5 users in each booth session.
Do I need to setup a booth ahead of time?
No, Cymo Booth is designed to be "ephemeral", meaning that the booth gets teared down once everyone leaves and nothing is saved.
How can I share my booth to my boothmates?
You can send the booth ID to your boothmate(s) directly, so that they can join your booth by entering the ID in the Join page of the Cymo Booth desktop or web apps.
Alternatively, you can share the booth URL so that your boothmates can join direclty in a browser.
There are two places where you can copy the link to your booth:
- When you create a new booth the link can be copied right above the "Launch Booth" button.
- If you are in the booth already, navigate to the gear icon at the upper left corner to open the settings page. Once there, you can see the link ready to be copied at the top of the page.
