When you make someone else the host of a Webex scheduled meeting or Personal Room meeting in Webex Teams, you're letting them:

  • Add or remove people

  • Mute or unmute people

  • Lock or unlock the meeting

  • Record the meeting

  • End the meeting

If you want to let someone else start a meeting without you, you can let someone else be an alternate host. You can do this for Webex-scheduled or Personal Room meetings, and if you join later, you’ll become the host automatically.


You can only use this feature if the Webex site is managed in or linked to Cisco Webex Control Hub. Your and the alternate hosts' Webex Meetings accounts must also be linked to your Webex Teams accounts.

While in a meeting, you can assign a new host and either stay in the meeting or leave.

  • To make someone else the host and stay in the meeting, go to the participants list . Then, right-click the name of new host and click Assign as Host.
  • To make someone else the host and then leave the meeting, click Leave meeting and then choose Assign and Leave Meeting. From the participants list, choose a new host and click Assign and leave.
