This article applies to all TeamViewer Meeting users.
In this article, you will learn how to join a TeamViewer Meeting using the TeamViewer Meeting software via your computer or a mobile device and how to join a meeting from a telephone only.
📌Note: You can only join a meeting after the organizer has started it. Until they start the meeting you will be queued in a TeamViewer Meeting waiting room.
To join a TeamViewer Meeting meeting, the organizator will share the following data with you by email or another communication tool:
- Start date and time
- Meeting ID
- The topic of the Meeting
- optional: Password
Joining using the TeamViewer Meeting software
After the organizator provided you with the meeting ID and a password (if
needed), you can join the TeamViewer Meeting meeting from your computer or mac.
1. On the navigation bar, click on Meeting and enter the Meeting ID under Join.
📌Note: You can enter the meeting ID with or without leading "m" and hyphens. TeamViewer Meeting adjusts the entry automatically.
If the meeting is not yet active, you must wait until the organizer starts it. If the organizer has protected the meeting with a password, you must enter the password.
2. After entering the TeamViewer Meeting meeting, you need to activate your microphone to speak with the other participants and your video to transmit your video.
Due to data protection reasons, you need to activate the microphone and your camera in each meeting manually.
Click on the microphone for speaking and activate your webcam for video transmission.
