Don’t make others resent your presence


You need a good quality headset and mic.Hardware

QUBE is a ‘natural’ environment so everyone can speak to everyone else. We are not restricted to text or only one person talking like WebEx.

You will need to be able to hear and speak to other people.  For this you will need a headset.  Everyone else will have one. If you choose to use the built in mic or speakers (unless they have excellent noise cancellation) everyone else hears echos and background noise …and it’s terrible for them!

How to check if they can hear you on QUBE:

No need to keep asking, “Can you hear me?” like you do on a conference or skype call or other digital media – Just look at the icon next to your name to see if you can be heard;

SpeakingL3UserGlyph OK

SpeakingL1UserGlyph Very Quiet
