How to join meeting audio by phone (call me) in Zoom

The easiest way to join a meeting or webinar by phone is to call yourself (also known as “call me”) while you are in it. In addition, you can manually dial into the meeting by dialing into the phone number.

Note : 

  • It is not possible to “Call me” more than 15 minutes before the start of the meeting if you call earlier.
  • It is also not possible to use the “Call me” feature if the meeting is set to have “No Fixed Time.”

Prerequisites for joining meeting or webinar audio by phone

You should also verify that your phone service has not blocked the phone numbers for the call-outs in your account. Zoom will always use the following dedicated number for US-based numbers, +1-646-568-7788. Zoom will use the list of international phone numbers in the web portal in ascending order whenever international numbers are to be called. Therefore, it means that if the first number on the list is not available, the second number on the list will be used instead. Zoom will use the United States toll-free number, +1-646-568-7788, if none of the numbers with the respected country are available.
