Vonage Meeting Rooms
What is Vonage?
- Vonage is a cloud-based video conferencing solution that is fully integrated with Grip Web Networking.
- Currently it's not supported on Mobile Applications powered by Grip.
- Grip’s virtual meeting room can be powered by Vonage. This is highly recommended if you have attendees in China or the UAE.
- For further information on this, please contact your Grip Account Manager

At the first launch of the virtual meeting room, your browser will ask you to allow Grip Networking Platform access to your microphone and camera. If by mistake you chose the block option and your camera or microphone doesn't work, you can always click on the camera icon displayed in the browser access bar and change your permissions
You can always change your camera & microphone permissions directly in your browser settings. You will find detailed instructions specific to your browser in a respective article below:
