    System Requirements

    Your Real Appeal sessions are all online, live-streaming, audio/video conferences. 

    Sessions are optimized to work best on smartphones and tablets with the RA Effect app available on the Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store. 

    If you choose to access your sessions from a computer, we recommend that you have a webcam and a microphone (or a headset with a microphone) for the best experience. While you will not automatically be on video for group sessions, you can choose this feature during your sessions. 

    The following platforms have been tested and certified to support the optimal Real Appeal Effect experience:
