Join a Third Party Meeting from a Zoom Room Follow

Overview

Zoom Rooms can be invited to meetings with Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, GoToMeeting, or BlueJeans and join the meeting with one click. This may be useful for companies migrating to Zoom from other video conferencing solutions or who work with vendors and customers who use 3rd party meeting services.

Note: Zoom Room licensing, allows Zoom Rooms to make an outbound H.323/SIP call, without additionally Zoom licensing.

For Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, and GoToMeeting, customers need to configure a third-party interop service, such as Polycom RealConnect, Pexip, Webex CMR, or GTM InRoomLink. As long as the third-party host’s meeting invitation includes a SIP address for interop dialing, Zoom Rooms will be able to access the third-party meeting details from the invitation, that will allow the Zoom Room to generate a one-touch, join button for the third-party meeting. 

Customers who have Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, WebEx or GoToMeeting, but do not have the interop services above can join as audio-only participants. The Zoom Room will show a button to join the audio conference with one click. This requires a Zoom audio conferencing plan with callout enabled. Participants in the room can join the third party meeting from a computer and share their screen to the room display to view content or receive video. Learn how to share your screen in a Zoom Room.
