How to Get to Meetings
Paltalk How-to PDF – (long version)
All meetings take place on Paltalk. They last approximately one hour, and have a specific format. We are a “voice” meeting site, meaning that our meetings take place in a “voice enabled” room. We can literally talk to and hear each other share.
You will need speakers to be able to hear our voice shares. A microphone is necessary only if you would like to talk to share. You are welcome to type your shares too. Simply create a username and password for Paltalk and join us!
See the Calendar of Meetings page for days and times of meetings.
PC users can go to http://www.paltalk.com to download free Paltalk software client, and install it on your PC computer. Then create an account with a username and password on your own computer. When you click on the Paltalk icon on your desktop, it automatically connects you to Paltalk.
Mac users go to the Paltalk Express website at: http://express.paltalk.com, create a free account with a username and password and logon to your account online.
iPhone, iPad, and Droid apps are also available from their respective app stores, for free. Please do a search for Paltalk for your device’s apps. The features are a bit different with these apps, but you can hear the meetings and type share.
