ou are almost close to hosting a successful virtual event with Airmeet. Let’s quickly do a few checks before you start your Airmeet event.

We want to introduce you to a bunch of technical requirements to ensure your seamless experience with Airmeet—we have an exclusive set of prerequisites for hosts, speakers and participants. Come on, let’s take a glance at all of them from devices to connection speed.

What are the different supported browsers for hosts, speakers and participants?

Airmeet sessions are streamed fine in all the modern-day browsers. Considering the fact the platform comes in with a lot of exciting engagement and interaction opportunities, it is recommended that you use Chrome 79+, Firefox 76+, Internet Edge and Brave.

Here’s a quick list of modern-day browsers and the experience you could expect out of them:

Browser
Interactive mode
Non-interactive mode (Lite mode)
Chrome 79+ (Version 79 or higher)
-
Firefox 76+ (Version 76 or higher)
-
Microsoft Edge
-
Brave
-
Safari
Opera
Heya, participants.

We recommend you to use browsers that deliver an interactive experience. If you use a browser that doesn’t support interactions, you will be in Lite mode. In the lite mode,

  • You will experience a 30 second lag in the sessions.
  • You will not be able to engage in the session via raise hand, emojis, Q&A and polls.
  • You will be missing out on the networking session in the social lounge—since these are high on interactions, you’re expected to use a highly compatible browser.
Listen up, speakers and hosts.
We strongly recommend hosts and speakers to sign in from the laptops or desktop computers and use Chrome 79+ for smooth interactions, screen share and other engagements on the stage. Check your Chrome version by opening Google Chrome → Click on the three dots icon on the top right → Help → About Google Chrome.
If you are joining in a non-interactive mode, the platform will automatically send you a notification to move to an interactive mode to best experience the event. Participants can always feel free to upgrade or choose to continue in the Lite mode. But for speakers and hosts, it is mandatory to be in the interactive mode.

What are the recommended devices to elevate your Airmeet experience?

Speakers and hosts, kindly note:
We strongly recommend hosts and speakers to sign in from the laptops or desktop computers and use Chrome 79+ for smooth interactions, screen share and other engagements on the stage.

If you’re a participant, then an Airmeet event is best experienced on Laptops and desktop computers. You will be able to watch the sessions in the Lite mode(non-interactive mode) if you are attending the event using mobile phones or tablets. The platform automatically notifies you if you have logged in from an unsupported device.

In the lite mode(non-interactive mode)
  • You will experience a 30 second lag in the sessions.
  • You will not be able to engage in the session via raise hand, emojis, Q&A and polls. 
  • You will be missing out on the networking session in the social lounge—since these are high on interactions, you’re expected to use a highly compatible browser.

Connection speed

Hosts and Speakers are requested to have a stable internet connection with a minimum speed of 15 Mb/s(Upload and download) for optimal results.

A few checks to ensure connection stability:

  1. Run your speed test here.
  2. Make sure that not more than two people are using the same connection.
  3. Connect to an Ethernet over a WiFi to have a smooth experience.

Participants are recommended to have a minimum speed of 10 Mb/s(Up and down) for better results.

You are all good now ✅  Have a fantastic Airmeet experience 💙
