- Interoperable with Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, and Opera Compatible with PCs, Android and macOS/iOS devices Supports two discrete connections at once SimplicityOpal enables guests to connect to the studio by simply clicking a link. Unlike Skype and other apps, the remote guest doesn’t install a thing – they just click a button, and go live. This simplicity means that guests with no technical background can connect and transmit HD audio.
