Step One: Go to Focusmate.com on your mobile device via Chrome and click Add to Homescreen

This will allow Focusmate to work more like an app showing up on your Homescreen.

Step Two: Launch a Test Session

To make sure your audio and video are working correctly, we recommend Launching a Test Session before your first session. You can launch by rotating your device horizontally to see the Launch a Test Session link at the top right.

Step Three: You are ready for your first mobile session.

When it's time for your session, go to your Homescreen and click the Focusmate icon and in the left menu, you'll see a list of your upcoming sessions. Click the play button on your session to join it.

(Note: Your session play button won't activate until 10 minutes before your session, if for some reason this isn't activated check your time zone in the Dashboard > Profile > Settings area. )
