💡 Suggestions

✨ Instead of using SoWork in the browser, try downloading the desktop app on our website: https://sowork.com/download-sowork-mac-windows.

✨ While in the space and not speaking with anyone, keep your camera and mic off. Then switch them on when you need to!

Keep the desktop app in mini-window mode. This will turn your app into a smaller window that will be present over other apps so you can always see what's happening without needing to see the entire space.

To lower your FPS (frames per second) in SoWork, go to the Profile and Account area, and into the Settings menu.

From there, select Performance. Lower your FPS as needed - this should decrease your CPU and GPU usage.
