In order to participate in some Live sessions, you need to install our Google Chrome Live extension, which is a small software program we built to customize your experience, such as allowing you to share your screen during a call.
Live is a video research tool! You'll need a laptop/desktop with a working camera and microphone in order to complete a Live session, which is why it's important to test using the laptop/desktop you will use for your session.

If you’re using an antivirus or firewall software, you'll need to ensure Chrome and dscout are trusted/allowed by these programs.
Bandwidth is how we test the strength of your internet connection! You'll need a strong internet connection in order to complete a Live session, which is why it's important to test using the wifi network you will use for your session.
