Attractr uses Google Meet for all online live entertainment. Covid pandemic has forces us to be familiar with video call softwares to socialize and work.

How to open a Google Meet
Keep in mind
Google Meet Setting
Google Meet default setting is pretty straightforward and basic. As a host of the show, we recommend the setting below. To change the setting, click the 3 dots icon on your Google Meet screen.
Google Meet may suck. For instance, default Google Meet does't allow to accept all users automatically, meaning a host has to accept each audiences to enter the room, and doesn't give many control to a host such as muting all. But use it to interact with audiences in a unique and creative way. Simple action of pinning or muting can be an engaging or anticipating moment for them. Do you remember at the big tent or theater before a show starts that an artist give an instruction to turn off sound on mobile to all audiences in a very comic or engaging way? You can use the tactics through screen to entertain and engage with audiences.
Audiences are ready to go extra mile to make a better online experience. We now change a background image, buy a new camera and audio system, or install apps to send an emoji. Google Chrome has a variety of apps for Google Meet to give a notch to online experience. If you want to use these, make sure to send a personal note to each audience prior to the show requesting a certain preparation to enjoy your show 100%.
