That’s interesting to hear, Renee. I just checked with Wonder, and they still recommend that you are on only one platform at a time. You may well be able to be visibly connected to both platforms simultaneously. However, I still doubt that you can be live on both platforms at the same time, because both of them would normally want exclusive access to your computer’s input and output device. Regardless, there are probably some cool technical ways to get round this, and I’d welcome any suggestions from readers who have figured out how to be live on both platforms at once. (Be sure to provide details of your setup if you do get this to work.)

“ Unfortunately, it’s not possible to run two platforms simultaneously on one computer, because each needs exclusive access to camera, microphone, and output sound.”

This is not the case, at least in my limited experience.
Last week someone wanted to show me Wonder, which I hadn’t seen or used before. I was logged into a Zoom already and clicked the link he sent, which brought me into his Wonder room.

I was visible on video in both places and heard both audios through my earphones, at the same time.

It was actually a bit disconcerting for me and confusing to the people in the zoom, who saw me talking but couldn’t hear me because I was on mute on Zoom; they didn’t know I was logging into another platform as well.

I was actually surprised that my video and audio didn’t automatically disconnect from Zoom when I joined Wonder, but it didn’t.

So it’s absolutely possible to be on both at once. Why you would want to is another issue. It was not healthy for the brain.

Read my June 2019 review, when Wonder was called Yotribe…
