I want to start/join a meeting as a host in Zoom Meeting.

 

 

 

 

Cases where you need to start a meeting as a host

  • To record a meeting
  • When leaving a participant, etc.

To start a meeting as a host:

  • Zoom desktop client for Mac, PC, Linux
  • Zoom app for Android, iOS, web browser, H.323 and SIP devices

Then, you need to start / join the meeting while logged in.

If the host joins the meeting by phone dial-in:

You must specify an alternate host to start the meeting or turn on the Join feature in front of the host. You can not dial in as a host to start a meeting unless it is a personal audio conference.

Note: If you were invited to another Zoom user’s meeting, see How to Join a Meeting.

H.323 / SIP

To start a meeting from an H.323 or SIP device as a host, you must include the host key in the dial string.

The host key logs in to my profile, and when you click [View] next to the host key, the host key is displayed.
