Real-time troubleshooting

Enhance users’ experience when issues arise with real-time monitoring and troubleshooting tools. These tools are free to use and by default switched on for all embedded customers.


Video meetings depend on various factors. Some of them are within users' control - but only if they are aware of them. Typical root causes of audio and video issues include:

  • Poor or unstable internet connection

  • High CPU usage due to intensive software processes, running several applications at once, having numerous open browser tabs, or even aging device hardware

In order to help users deal with these issues, we provide a suite of real-time troubleshooting tools featuring:

These tools allows participants and hosts to troubleshoot connection issues during calls, aiming to reduce your team’s support tickets and ensure high-quality experiences.

Meeting diagnostics

CPU usage monitoring is available exclusively for Chrome on desktop.

Users can easily access meeting diagnostics and check:

  • Overall performance

  • Audio transmission

  • Video transmission

  • CPU usage (exclusive to Chrome on desktop)

Detection of poor network conditions

  1. In case of poor network conditions, users see a notification and a red indicator appears

  2. Users can expand the panel to access more details and see actionable tips on how to improve the connection

  3. Meeting participants with poor network conditions will appear with an indicator on their video tile. This helps other participants understand why the affected participant's audio or video quality is lower.
