Sometimes when you are organising a Zoom meeting, you or a delegate will need to join it via telephone.
Calling in to meetings is very useful, for example, when people are on the road and can't attend a meeting using the Zoom app on their laptop or mobile device. There are also other scenarios in which using a phone to attend a Zoom meeting can be a better option than using an app on a computer:
- internet connectivity is limited
- a meeting is audio only
- the person tried to join the Zoom meeting and it failed
- the call quality is better if they dial in
- people can join a meeting 'hands free' using Bluetooth devices; or
- people find it's easier and more convenient for their situation.
When you set up your meeting, you can use the meeting options to specify where attendees are dialing in from. The country that you select denotes the numbers that are available to dial in to the meeting from and this information will be sent with the meeting details to the meeting attendees.
