Zoom Rooms can be invited to meetings with Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, GoToMeeting, Fuze, Google Hangouts 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.
For Skype for Business, 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, WebEx or GoToMeeting, but do not have the interop services above can join as audio-only participants. The availability of interop services does not affect joining a Google Hangouts meeting, as those participants will always be audio-only. 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.

On the Zoom Rooms controller, tap Join to call into the meeting from your Zoom Room.
Note: Ensure that you have the prerequisites. This feature requires the service configured on the third-party meeting service (Polycom RealConnect, Pexip, Webex CMR or GTM InRoomLink).

On the Zoom Rooms controller, tap Join Audio to call into the meeting from your Zoom Room.
Once joined into the meeting, you will have audio controls on the Zoom Room controller.
If you do not have a Join button as shown below, confirm that the Support 3rd party conferencing dial-in for Zoom Rooms setting is enabled for the room and the account has Conference Room Connector licenses or an audio conferencing plan with callout enabled.
