What is a Meeting ID? Follow


The meeting ID is the meeting number associated with an instant or scheduled meeting. The meeting ID can be a 9, 10 or 11-digit number. The 9-digit number is used for instant, scheduled or recurring meeting. The 10, or 11-digit number is used for Personal Meeting IDs.
