Waiting Room for Dialpad Meetings

To keep your video meetings secure, we’ve added a new Waiting Room feature to Dialpad Meetings, which will give you full control over who can join your meeting. When you lock your meetings, all new participants will be placed into a virtual waiting room until you permit them to enter. You have the option to admit multiple participants from the participant menu. This feature is available for the browser, desktop and mobile apps. Visit the Help Center to read more about enabling the Waiting Room feature.
