Joining From Email or Calendar


Open your email invite, and click Join meeting. If you don't have a meeting invite, contact your meeting host.


If this is the first time you're joining a Webex meeting, Webex automatically downloads the app.

  • If you don't want to install anything, click Join from your browser ( Not Recommended )
  • Click the installer file to install the app.
  • If the automatic download didn't work, click Download the app again.
  • Click Open Webex if you're prompted to do so, otherwise click Launch meeting.


If you join from a Linux computer or Chromebook, you won't be prompted to install anything. The meeting simply opens in your browser.


Enter your name and email address, and click Next.


If you're asked for a meeting password, enter the meeting password - it's in your email invitation - and click Next.


In the preview window, you can make sure your audio and video sound and look good before you join the meeting. First, choose how you want to hear.

  • Use computer audio (default) ̶ Use your computer with a headset or speakers.
  • Call in—If you prefer to use your phone for audio, dial in when the meeting starts. A list of global call-in numbers appears after you join the meeting. Make a note of the access code or meeting number and the attendee ID. You'll need to enter these numbers to join the meeting.

    Select one of the available numbers to join the meeting and when prompted, enter the access code or meeting number and the attendee ID. If you don't have your attendee ID, press # to wait in the lobby until someone in the meeting lets you in.


    Your attendee ID connects your name in the meeting to your audio. If you don’t enter your attendee ID, your audio connection appears as a call-in user in the Participants list, separate from your name, and you can’t control audio from the application.

  • Don't connect to audio̶ Use this option when you need to join a meeting and share content, and don't need audio. For example, you're in a conference room with your team, or someone already connected to the meeting from a video device.

Click  if you want to say hi to everyone when you join.


Click  if you want to be seen when you join.

To connect to a compatible video device, click Use video system.


Click Join Meeting.
