SummaryRingCentral Meetings is a Cloud Video Conferencing service that gives you the power of video conferencing as part of your complete business communications solution. Starting and joining a RingCentral Meeting can be done by the Host or the Participants of a meeting.
Details

NOTE: RingCentral Meetings replaced the legacy dial-in numbers with (773) 231-9226 for RingCentral US customers and +44 (203) 875-4507 for RingCentral UK customers. After the migration, the Meeting ID will be automatically validated (no need to press "1"). An error prompt appears if the meeting ID is incorrect. Meeting security will be enhanced by making sure the phone participants cannot enter the meeting before the host when Enable join before host (Meetings Desktop app) or Allow Join before host (Meetings Mobile app) is disabled.
