What equipment do I need to use GoToWebinar?

All you need to start using are the following:

  • Windows or Mac computer
  • Internet connection (broadband is best)
  • Microphone and speakers (built-in or USB headset)
  • Webcam to use GoToMeeting with HDFaces

Most computers have built-in microphones and speakers, but you will get much better audio quality if you use a headset or handset.You can also make calls on your landline or mobile device.
