The RingCentral app makes joining a meeting simple. You can easily start, join, and schedule a meeting all within the Video interface, so there’s no need to leave the app to join a meeting. Additionally, when it’s time to join a scheduled meeting, the app will notify you when a meeting has started, ensuring you’re always on time for your meeting. 
 
You can join a meeting in the mobile app that has been scheduled either by you or another user in the RingCentral app. Additionally, you can also sync your Outlook or Google calendar with the RingCentral app so all your scheduled meetings are in one place, allowing you to join any meeting without leaving the app. To learn more about connecting your calendar, visit Connecting your Microsoft or Google Calendar in RingCentral mobile app. 
 
If you have synced your calendar, scheduled meetings will appear in the Video interface homepage. When you navigate to this page, you can join a scheduled meeting in one of two ways. Let’s review these methods below.

Joining a scheduled meeting

To join a meeting, simply tap on the blue Join button next to the meeting’s subject. This will give you the option to turn your camera on to share your video, and use your device audio. 
 
If you only want to listen to the meeting through your phone, you have the option to dial in. We’ll discuss this further below.

Dialing in to a meeting

If you dial in to a meeting, you will only have the ability to listen to the meeting. Your camera is turned off and you won’t be able to view if someone is sharing their screen. To dial in to a meeting, follow these steps: 
1. Navigate to Video via the bottom menu bar
2. Tap the three-dot icon beside the Join button
3. Select one of the options from the dropdown menu to dial in to the meeting (see below for more info)
You will have 2 options to dial in:
  • Dial in with RingCentral: This will prompt the RingCentral mobile app to automatically call the meeting’s dial-in number, access code, and participant ID
  • Dial in with my phone: This will use your mobile carrier and carrier minutes to automatically call the meeting’s dial-in number, access code, and participant ID

Joining options

When you tap on the three-dot icon beside the Join button, you will have access to a couple of options for sending an email or message to the meeting participants before joining the meeting. 
  • Send message: If the meeting has started, use this option to message participants and inform them that you will be 5 or 10 minutes late, that you want to reschedule, or you can’t make it to the meeting. You also have the option to write a custom message
