At Vowel, we strive to provide the best audio and video experience possible to delight our customers in meetings. To experience the best Vowel can offer, we recommend all users in the meeting use the Chrome browser.

Chrome has invested in the latest and greatest version of the software we use to send audio/video to the user. When everyone on the call is on Chrome, we can use the best, fastest way to transfer data and give customers the highest quality Vowel experience for their internet connection.

While Chrome provides the best experience for all participants, if one person joins from another browser (i.e., Safari or Firefox) or mobile, the Vowel experience will be degraded for all users. For example, if 19 people are on Chrome and one person joins on Safari, everyone's Vowel experience will be degraded.

The other thing to be aware of is on iOS devices, even when you're using the "Chrome App", you're not using a Chrome browser. Every web browser on an iPhone or iPad is Safari, dressed up to look like other browsers. So when someone joins from mobile web on an iPhone, everyone in the meeting will get a slightly worse experience. We are working hard to solve this issue for all meeting participants.

Additionally, we recommend you use the latest version of Chrome to have the best experience on Vowel.
