Have you ever started a VA with a customer, only to find they are being blocked by a message saying they need to allow camera permissions? The message looks like this:

Change a site's camera & microphone permissions

  1. On your Android device, open the Chrome app .

  2. To the right of the address bar, tap the three vertical dots, then choose "Settings".

  3. Tap "Site Settings".

  4. Tap Microphone or Camera.

  5. Tap to turn the microphone or camera on or off.If you see the site you want to use under Blocked, tap the site Access your microphone Allow.

If you’ve turned off microphone access on your device, you can control your app permissions on Android to use your mic.

If you're using a Chrome device at work or school, your network administrator can set camera and microphone settings for you. In that case, you can't change them here.
