RingCentral Meetings - Desktop | Assign a New Host or Co-Host

« Go Back


SummaryWhen you start a Meeting, you automatically become the Host for that Meeting. You can assign another Participant to be the new Host or a Co-Host of the meeting. Co-Hosts have the same privileges as the Hosts and Hosts are able to withdraw Co-host permissions.

This feature is OFF by default. Account Administrators can enable this feature account-wide and for Users.
