How to use voice commands

You can say… Zoom Rooms will…
“Hello Zoom” This is the wake word to get started. The Zoom Room will be ready to receive commands. You can also say this command followed by another.
“Check in”
“Check out”
Check in and keep the room reserved, or free the room for others to use if checking out.
Start meeting”
“Start scheduled meeting”
“Start an instant meeting”
Start a scheduled or instant meeting.
Join meeting ID” (say the ID number) Join the meeting ID you have selected. If the meeting requires a passcode you will be prompted to say it. The passcode must be said one character at a time.
“Join personal link” (say the personal link name. You must say one character at a time) Join the personal link. If there is a passcode, you will be prompted to say it. The personal link name and passcode must be said one character at a time.
“Delete” Delete the last number or character you entered.
“Leave meeting”
“End meeting”
Leave or end the meeting.

 

Known issues

  • By deleting the last character, you can fix any errors that may be detected when you say the meeting ID, personal link, or passcode. Next time you attempt to say the character, try slightly changing it. Say “lower case a” instead of “a” if “8” is detected.
