NOTE: When the regular speaker is turned on, the speaker icon will only display one filled bar. If the loudspeaker is turned on, all bars are filled out.

 

External Microphone/External Speakers:

REFLEKT Remote supports the most common headphones and microphones. Any external device should be connected to your device before starting the call. The speaker symbol will indicate if your external device has been recognized.

If your external device was not recognized, please end the call, check input and output sources in your system settings and re-start the call.

For Windows, bluetooth headsets must be selected as the system default device in Windows before starting a call, otherwise they will not be recognized.
