Can I connect to audio from the GoToMeeting app?

If the organizer provides both mic and speakers (VoIP) and conference call numbers, you will automatically connect to mic and speakers over your device’s Internet connection (WiFi) once you join. The audio quality on your device depends on the quality and bandwidth available on the WiFi network that you're connected to. For best results, you should make sure you have nothing else running that might use up bandwidth. WiFi connection is highly recommended.

No, you cannot currently join password-protected meetings from your Windows tablet.

Are webcams supported? I’m prompted to use my webcam but I don’t see them at all.

Although you may be prompted to use your webcam and microphone, GoToMeeting does not currently support webcams for the Windows Tablet. Therefore, you will not be able to see others' webcams or show your own.
