Starting a meeting in the app desktop and web

Last updated on February 14, 2022
When you start a meeting, you are designated the host. As host, you have extended controls, including managing meeting participants, starting and stopping recording, ending the meeting for all, and more. 
To learn more about host controls, visit Using Video host controls on desktop and web
Note: Hosts and participants are permitted to have two meetings running simultaneously in the app desktop and web. This applies to instant meetings or scheduled meetings. If a participant or host tries to join a third meeting session, the first attended meeting will automatically disconnect.
