We want to make sure your Codo experience is as easy and painless as possible.

Part 2: Webcam and Microphone working in Base Camp
Now we need to test your webcam and mic in Base Camp. Base Camp is our online room, similar to a zoom call. It’s where you'll be able to see and hear the instructor and other gamers.
The easiest way to make sure your webcam, mic, speakers and headphones is to go and "chat" to our Google Home! Plug your headphones/headset in (the ones your gamer will use in camp), click the follow the directions below and chat away. Make sure to speak loudly and clearly.
Head to codo.ca and select "Codo Code" from the menu. Type in 'Google' and hit 'Let's Go!' to join our Google Home.
You'll be asked to give permission to use your Camera and Microphone, so make sure you hit Yes
Once you’ve allowed permissions you’ll meet our trusty Google Home, say “Hey Google! Tell me a joke!”.
If you can hear Google Reply with a joke, everything is set up properly!
Google doesn't respond? Make sure your microphone isn’t muted!
If you can’t hear Google’s response, make sure your volume is turned up loud enough.
If you can see yourself, your camera is on! Yahoo!
If you can’t see yourself, click the arrow beside the camera and make sure you’ve chosen the camera you can see yourself in!
