We are super excited to announce the launch of video conferencing in Limnu. Now you can see and talk to the people you are collaborating with on a whiteboard. It’s almost like you're in the same room!
Check out our video to see how easy video conferencing is.
How to start a video conference call
Admins of boards, or any team member on a TEAM plan, can start a video call. Check the mirror then follow these steps to start your video call:
Select the Person icon at the bottom right-hand corner, or use hotkeys Shift-V on a desktop.
This will open the Video Panel
Click on the video pane icon at the top, if it is not already selected.
Select Enter Video Room and allow your microphone and camera.
BOOM! You started your video conference call!
Now anyone invited to collaborate on your board can join your call. People already on your whiteboard will see that the video has started and should follow the STEP 1 & STEP 2.
People who join the board when a call is in progress skip straight to STEP 2. The Video Panel will automatically open when they join the board.
Once you are in the conference call you can mute your microphone or turn on and off your camera. You can also change which camera, microphone or speaker you want to use by selecting the gear icon in the Video Panel.
To exit your video conference call select Leave Room. This ends the call only for you. People will remain on the call until they select Leave Room.
