7. Functions and use of the Togee app
We feel it is important that you have an overview on the functions of the Togee app and to understand exactly what you can use it for. Therefore, in this chapter, we briefly describe the different platforms and uses of the Togee app.
7.1. The onboarding
7.1.1. Once you have confirmed your phone number, your registration is complete, and you can log into the Togee app. At first login, you will see a tutorial that shows you the main functions of the Togee app.
7.1.2. During the onboarding process, we will also ask you for certain permissions that are necessary for the proper functioning of the app. The main permissions we will need from you are:
a) contact permission
b) access to front and back camera
c) access to the microphone
d) access to screen recording
e) display on top of other applications, if you are using the Togee app on an Android device
When we ask for these permissions, we explain why we need them, and you can always stop using the Togee app if you do not wish to grant them. If your permissions are not complete you acknowledge that the Togee app could be malfunctioning. We specifically want you to understand that Screen Recording does not mean that Togee is recording or accessing any of your shared screen content, this permission is only used in a way described in Sections 2.9. and 7.5.2. of these Terms.
7.1.3. After going through the tutorial and granting the permissions needed, you are able to use all functions of the Togee application.
7.2. Your Profile settings
7.2.1. When you tap on Profile Settings, you can change your information, such as name, phone number, photo, username or password.

7.4. The Room
7.4.1. In the Togee app, we call the view where you can see the participant, the whole conversation and chat history in a particular chat the “Room”.
7.4.2. In the Room you can text, chat and share content with all of the people in the same Room. The maximum number of participants in a Room is four.
7.4.3. The icons at the bottom of the Room will indicate all the functions you can do: text, share photos or voice. You can also start an audio call or a video call. When not in a Live Session, the doodle option will be shown in grey and it will not be available.
7.4.4. The Room contains an in-app browser that you can access by using the search bar at the top of the conversation bar. This way you are able to have content and conversation as close to each other as possible. Just like on any other browser, you can create multiple tabs. The in-app browser is a personal browser, so only you will be able to view this content until you start screen sharing.
7.4.5. When you are done with browsing, you can swipe up the messages on the bottom of the screen to view the conversation full screen.
7.4.6. You can find the chat settings in the upper right corner of the Room view.

If you are the creator of the group, you can also delete the chat history, delete the whole Room, or remove a member from the Room.

220.127.116.11. Before the Live Session starts, you will have the opportunity to turn off and disable the display of all other notifications so these will not interrupt the Live Session.

You can see the colour assigned to each person next to their faces in this bottom bar. You can also swipe that bottom bar out if you would like to view the whole screen.
184.108.40.206. All the tools that are accessible at the bottom bar in the Room (text, camera) are accessible the same way during a Live Session.
