How do I minimise my video feed?

You can minimise your video feed when you are on a call. Your patient or client doesn't need to be on the call at the time. To minimise the feed, follow these steps:

  1. Log into Coviu as you normally would.
  2. Enter the call as you normally would (this could be your User Room, a Scheduled Session or joining a patient in the Waiting Area).
  3. Click the Minimise Your Video button toward the top right corner of your video feed. This will hide your video feed and only show your client or patient.
