SummaryHow do I host or join a RingCentral Meeting using my mobile device? How do I invite participants into a RingCentral Meeting using my iOS or Android device?
Details

You can join RingCentral Meetings on any Android or iOS device using the RingCentral Meetings mobile app.

NOTE: A conference bridge can be used for 8 hours at a time. Hosts and participants will be disconnected from the conference and will have to dial back in, should a meeting last longer than 8 hours.

UPDATE: 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 also 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.
