Invite Participants in a Meeting

In the New Meetings Experience, if new subjects are discussed or if urgent topics come up, you can quickly invite new participants who can contribute to the conversation. You can invite participants at any time by having the meeting dial out to them for an audio-only experience, via Virtual Office if they are company contacts, or by sharing meeting details with them via chat or email.

Note: You can only invite participants if you are attending a meeting via your Virtual Office apps.
