UC, Lync 2013, Join a Lync Meeting or an Audio or Video Conference Call with Lync 2013 for Windows Phone

On this page you can learn how to join an online meeting by voice or video in Lync 2013 for Windows Phone.


You can join a conference using Lync for Windows Phone. Or, if you’re in a call with someone who’s using Lync on their computer, they can add participants to the call.

You can’t start an ad-hoc conference call or add participants to an existing conference call when you’re using Lync.

Join a Lync Meeting or audio or video conference call

You can only join the audio or video portion of a Lync Meeting using Lync for Windows Phone. When you join from a mobile device, you can only hear the meeting audio and see the video of other participants (if it’s being shown). You won’t be able to see any meeting content being shared.

  1. To join a Lync Meeting, from the meetings screen, select the meeting that you want to join, and then tap Join Meeting or tap the meeting hyperlink.
  2. Depending on how you set your VoIP call options, one of the following will happen:
  • You’ll be connected to audio or video using VoIP either by using Wi-Fi (if you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network) or your cellular data plan.
  • Or, Lync will call you on your mobile phone and you’ll need to accept the Lync call in order to join the meeting. This happens only when your audio or video call options are set to ON and your Windows Phone isn’t connect to a Wi-Fi network.

For more information about VoIP call options, go to Manage Wi-Fi for VoIP options.

When you join a meeting, by default your audio will be muted.

Join a Lync Meeting or conference call by phone

You can also dial in to the meeting from any phone by dialing the Join by Phone numbers listed in the meeting request. The dial-in phone number is listed towards the bottom of the request.

 NOTE:    When you join a Lync Meeting by dialing in, your telephone number will be displayed in the meeting roster.

Waiting in the meeting lobby

The meeting lobby is an online waiting area. The meeting leader can control access to the meeting, or admit someone who doesn’t have the correct meeting credentials.

If the meeting leader has enabled the meeting lobby, you’ll need to wait until the meeting leader admits you to the meeting. If you’re waiting in the lobby, don’t move to another screen because your request to join the meeting will be cancelled if you do.
