With millions of people now working remotely, carrier and Internet and Wi-Fi networks are experiencing unprecedented traffic. To avoid busy signals and other connection issues, we encourage you to use dial-out or computer (VoIP) audio instead of dialing in directly to meetings or audio conferences.
With a bit of setup, you and your guests can attend the next audio conference from your computers and have the conference call your phone (dial-out) or your computer (VoIP audio). Just send invitations from My Meeting Hub, and then use these tools to start your audio conferences.
Here are steps you can take to get the most out of your audio account.
Use dial-out or computer audio
Did you know you can have an audio conference call you or use your Internet connection for meeting audio?
On your Mac or Windows computer, just use My Meeting Hub to start your audio conference. This opens the web-based Audio Controls, a user-friendly, visual way to host your audio conference right from your computer screen. The Audio Controls let you choose between having the conference call your phone or your computer (VoIP audio).
Your guests can also use dial-out or computer audio. Use My Meeting Hub to send meeting invitations with a Connect Me option that lets them join your audio conference in the Audio Controls.

Host a conference in the Audio Controls
The Audio Controls provide a user-friendly, visual way to host your audio conference. The Participants list displays the names or phone numbers of everyone connected to your conference. (When your guests use the meeting invitation to join, the Audio Controls displays their names.)
Use the toolbar to lock the conference, mute all guests, or record your conference. Is someone missing? You can invite them via email or dial-out.Watch the video »
