To participate you need to join with a Laptop or stationary computer. Besides this we do not reccommend joining through a smart TV or in a setting where you are far away from the screen. Technically you may be able participate, however in our experience participants that are further away from their screen tend to be left out of the discussion more due to various reasons and have a less fulfilling experience.
