Start a meeting

To host a meeting, start your meeting from the desktop app, the Outlook add-in, or access a supported web browser and enter your meeting URL. The latest version of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer 11 are supported; you cannot attend or host a meeting in another browser.

The desktop app lets you start and join meetings more quickly. Because you are signed in to the app, you do not have to enter your credentials again.

Note: Connect your Outlook Calendar to view your schedule and start meetings with one click. Learn more »

The desktop app provides two different options to start a meeting: the Home tab (if you connected your Outlook Calendar) and the Meetings tab.

From the Home tab

To start your meeting:

  1. Open the desktop app and click the Home tab, if needed.
  2. Click Join on a meeting you created to launch your meeting room and automatically sign in.

The next step is to choose how you want to talk in the meeting by connecting your audio.

From the Meetings tab

To start your meeting:

  1. Open the desktop app and click the Meetings tab.
  2. Under My meeting info, click Start my meeting. Your meeting room opens and you are automatically signed in as the host.
