Recommended Hardware

You need a laptop or desktop computer with 4G (ninimum) of memory and a 2+ Ghz processor, or any Chromebook with 4G of memory and a 1.5+ Ghz processor. For audio, it's recommended to use a headset. A headset will ensure that others can hear your voice clearly and avoid hearning echo or background noise from other users. Any basic headset with a built-in microphone will work.

You need to have at least 1.0 Mbits/second upstream and 2 Mbits/second downstream. To check bandwidth you can test it on Speedtest.
