- The host can give participants access to share their screens.

Mobilise your online meetings.
- RingCentral Meetings works well for companies implementing bring your own device (BYOD) initiatives, because it empowers employees to work the way they want with their favorite devices. Unlike some of the free, consumer-grade online meeting apps, RingCentral Meetings ensures that employees maintain your company’s brand image no matter where they are located or what device they use to join a meeting. Because it syncs across a user’s mobile device, laptop or desktop computer, you can keep one single business identity and phone number consistent and separate from personal contact information.
- In addition to using RingCentral Meetings on your computer, you can also use it on any mobile device, including iPhone®, iPad®, and Android™ phones and tablets.
- Join or host an online meeting wherever you are: at the airport, at home, or on the go. All you need is broadband wired or wireless internet access with 3G or better connectivity.
- Join meetings from the car completely hands-free by enabling Safe Driving Mode. This feature disables video, plays audio through your device’s speaker, and mutes your microphone so other participants won’t know you’re in a car.
- Any participant in an online meeting can collaborate on shared content using annotation tools from iPhone or iPad.
