Transitioning from the RingCentral Meetings app to
the RingCentral app | RingCentral app 

With your transition from the RingCentral Meetings app to the new RingCentral app, you will still have access to your favorite RingCentral Meetings features as well as a better experience that provides messaging, video meetings, and phone calling all in one app.
 
In the RingCentral Meetings app, you could only manage video meetings and meeting recordings. But in the new RingCentral app, in addition to the RingCentral Meetings features, you can also:
  • Manage company users
  • Chat with co-workers
  • Make and receive phone calls
  • Integrate with other apps
  • Manage tasks, events, files, and notes
To learn more about the different features of the RingCentral app, visit Intro to the RingCentral app.

To upgrade to the new RingCentral Video, which gives you and your participants a dramatically better communication and collaboration experience, learn more here.

Note: Users without the updated RingCentral desktop and mobile app will be notified to download the latest version or use the web app.
