When hosts schedule meetings, they can allow attendees to join meetings before them. The host's name isn't shown in the meeting information until the host joins.

  • If you choose to Use Internet for Audio, you use your 3G or 4G data plan unless you're on a Wi-Fi connection. When you join an audio conference that's using Webex Audio or VoIP only, you use wide-band audio.


    If a participant who doesn't have wide-band audio joins a meeting that's using wide-band audio, audio for everyone is downgraded. Webex Meetings gives no warning message before the downgrade.
