Owning a Room
Every Whereby meeting takes place in a "room" with its own customizable link that doesn’t change ( unless you change it). Share your room link or join a meeting with a single click. Guests knock to enter and hosts let them in. When you create a room you're assuming ownership of the virtual space, and you'll have the ability to:
- Remove or manage a meeting participant
- Enable/disable integrations
- End Meeting for All
- Select different background colors and overlays on the Free plan
- Customize the background, logo, and knock page on Pro and Business plans
- Use the room name for all future meetings
Beginning in fall of 2021 we've started updating security features relating to rooms. The room owner must be present to host a meeting, even if the room is unlocked. To learn more you can review our article here

Create a Room on iOS
- To create a room on iOS, start by logging in to your account.
- From the home page, tap the Create Room button, and type in the room name that you want to Create.
After clicking Create room, you'll be taken directly to the room where you can copy the link and invite your guests!
Create a Room on Android
- Start by going to https://whereby.com on your phone's browser, and log in to your Whereby account if you haven't already (we recommend using Chrome)
- If you don't have any rooms attached to your account, you'll automatically be prompted to create a room. If you have a Pro account and you're creating additional rooms, click the Add Room button and go to Step 3.
- In the popup window, type the name of the room you want to create and click Add room. We'll let you know if the room already exists!
- Once you're in the room, you can invite users by tapping on the Share Link button, or by copying the room URL and sharing it.
