FAQ: HOW DOES MATCHMAKING WORK?

Q: What is Networking/Matchmaking and how does it work?

In the networking segment, when someone clicks the Ready button, the system automatically pairs you up with someone else who has also clicked the Ready button. This match is paired randomly. If both parties are available, the two are matched instantly and the video chat begins and lasts for 3 minutes.

Q: How many times can an attendee be paired in networking during an event?

A: Attendees can pair with other attendees as many times as possible during the event.

Q: How long does one networking meeting last?

A: We have set up the duration to the maximum 180 seconds per pairing.

Q: What if I want to extend the meeting, can I do that?

A: Absolutely! You can extend the meeting by clicking the Extend button. As the button is clicked, the other participant will receive a notification to confirm if they wish to extend the meeting. The extra time equals another 180 seconds which is the default duration.
