Using RingCentral Video Controls

Attendees in a RingCentral Video meeting can access the following controls via the bottom bar during a meeting:
  • Meeting information: The letter ‘i’ icon at the bottom left corner allows you to view or copy the meeting details.
  • Network connection: The signal icon shows the network connection details, including packet loss and jitter for sharing, video, and audio for upstream and downstream media streams. You will also see latency, which is measured for both upstream and downstream, so it is the same value for both. Clicking Diagnose issues redirects to the RingCentral Network Test service that provides the capability to diagnose network conditions.
