Using telephone call-out Follow

Overview

While in a meeting or webinar, you can call yourself or others to join your meeting by phone. This feature is also known as "call me".

Prerequisites

  • Host account is Pro or above
  • Subscribed to the call out add-on
  • Call Out setting enabled
  • Make sure your meeting or webinar role has permission to use call-out to join audio by phone or invite others.

Note: Make sure the call-out phone numbers in the account are not blocked by your phone service. For US numbers, Zoom will always use this dedicated number, +1-646-568-7788. For international calling numbers, Zoom will use the numbers list in the web portal in ascending order. This means if the first number is not available, the next number on the list is used. If none of the numbers with the respected country are available, Zoom will use the US dedicated number, +1-646-568-7788.
