Join a Meeting you were Invited to
With many video meeting services, accepting an invite to a meeting can be a complex process that requires registration or downloads. With Whereby, our meeting rooms always use the same link so it's easy to remember, and users can join simply by typing the link into a supported browser. Below is a video demo of how to join, as well as written instructions!
Join a Meeting with a Room Link or Room Name
If someone has invited you to their room, they've either given you a Room Link, or a Room Name. A Room Link looks like the following: "https://whereby.com/roomName". Note that the Room Name is actually just the last part of the URL, so if someone only gave you the Room Name you can still join! See below for the full join process in steps with screenshots so you know what to expect!
If you've already given Whereby permission to access your cam and mic, you'll skip steps 3 and 4
Below is an example of an invite to a meeting
To join the meeting, click on the link which opens a new browser tab (you can also copy paste the link if clicking doesn't work)
- Before entering the room, allow your browser to access the mic and camera by clicking on the Allow cam/mic button
- Then click Allow in the browser pop-up to confirm
- Before entering the room you'll be shown a preview of your camera image so you can make any adjustments. Click on the Join room button when you're ready to join
Now you're in the room! Enjoy your meeting!
