Once your account has been upgraded, you and your team will have access to these great new features:
This guide will help your company prepare for this important transition and provide account administrators the steps required to successfully prepare for the upgrade.
Important:
This preparation is important that users’ already-scheduled video meetings are not lost in this transition and they are able to benefit from their new video meeting capabilities.

Key steps to complete before the planned upgrade to RingCentral Video

The standalone RingCentral Meetings apps are being replaced by the unified RingCentral app, an all-in-one app with messaging, video meetings, and phone calling.
After your account is upgraded, your users will no longer be able to start, join, or host meetings on the RingCentral Meetings app.
To successfully plan for the transition to RingCentral Video, administrators must either complete the required steps listed below on behalf of their users or make sure users complete those steps themselves.
Note: You must have admin rights to your computer to complete these steps. If you don’t, please reach out to your local IT for assistance.
