System Requirements for Staff

As an organizer, you can easily host a session from any compatible Windows or Mac computer using the GoToWebinar desktop app. Other members of staff (Presenters, Panelists and Co-Organizers) can also use the desktop app to participate in sessions and share their webcam.

Note: If you are an attendee attempting to join a session, see the System Requirements for Attendees.

To get the most out of GoToWebinar, you can download and install the full-feature desktop software on your Windows and Mac computer. This allows you to access all of our great collaboration tools, including drawing tools, shared keyboard/mouse control and multi-monitor screen sharing. Learn more.

You can also check your system's compatibility automatically.
