How do I join a test meeting?

Issue

Objective

By joining a test session from your computer or mobile device, you can help make sure that your real session will connect correctly.

Environment

  • GoToMeeting
  • Windows
  • Mac

Procedure

Join a test session:
1. Click here to join our test session.
2. You will automatically be launched into the session.

  • If you see a "Waiting for the organizer" screen, then you've successfully joined the test session! You should be able to join all future GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar and GoToTraining sessions from this computer. You can now close the "Waiting for the organizer" screen to exit the test session.
  • If you do not reach the "Waiting for the organizer" screen, then there was an issue along the way. Make sure you meet all the system requirements for attendees, or click here for more troubleshooting tips.

Additional Information

NOTE: The "test session" feature will not go past the "Waiting for Organizer" screen, it only serves to test the connection.
If you want to test or explore the functionality of an ongoing session you will need to do this with a regular session involving several participants.
