Video calling with Teams
Grip Psychologen operates blended; meaning that our conversations take place both on location face-to-face and also through video calling.
For video calls, we use Microsoft Teams. This can be installed on either your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Are you not in possession of Microsoft Teams?
Another possibility is to use the URL (link) that we’ll send you by email a few minutes prior to the start of your appointment.
What do I need for the video call?
To be able to make video calls, a computer, tablet, or smartphone with a (stable) internet connection is required.
You have installed Microsoft Teams on the device. A working audio system and camera (or webcam) is also required.
We advise you to make use of headphones with a working microphone for optimal audio during the conversation.
Prior to the start of your conversation in Teams, you will have the possibility to check all the above-mentioned requirements.
So, check the internet connection, camera, and audio.
How do I install Teams on my computer?
I do not have a computer.
Teams is also available on a smartphone. Install the Teams application in the Appstore of your smartphone.
How do I install Teams on my smartphone?
