VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, is a method of using the Internet to send audio from one device to another and requires participants to use computers with headsets. It is typically used as an alternative to telephone communication.

VoIP technology is included with all GatherPlace Premium accounts. The host merely needs to configure the meeting to use the Allow Participants to Join by Computer-Phone (VoIP) option under the Voice Teleconferencing Options section of the meeting settings and the guests will be able to use their computer to hear and speak in a meeting.

Note:Participants using VoIP need a headset or other suitable audio devices connected to the computer (USB headsets or speaker phones are the recommended audio devices).

For more information on VoIP, see this Wikipedia article.
