  • 8 GB RAM

Recommended Internet Speeds

  • 10 Mbps internet download speed
  • 3 Mbps internet upload speed

You will still be able to experience most features of Gather with minimum internet speeds of 3 Mbps download and 1 Mbsp upload. As you connect to more people, however, you may experience greater lag in the experience. 

Gather's performance may vary based on the total number of video feeds you are connected to and whether you have "HD Video Quality" toggled on. You can edit this in User Settings

The number of videos you are connected to is based on the number of people you are actively video chatting with. It will be more taxing on your computer if you are connected to 20 or more participants as opposed to being connected to one or two people.
