Troubleshooting video calls with site permissions
Over the last few years, I’ve spent a lot of time on video calls, and I’m so glad I can stay in touch with my loved ones this way. When video calls don’t go quite as planned, I troubleshoot by having everyone check their site permissions. You can access this easily on Chrome through the lock icon, located in the address bar. From here, make sure that “Microphone” and “Camera” are turned on. And if a website has been bugging you with too many notifications, this is the same place where you can turn those off. The lock icon remains a favorite feature of mine, especially since my team has always celebrated giving users control over their settings.
