Dialing out from a Skype for Business meeting so other people can join it

Note

If you're looking for information about dialing out from a Teams meeting, see Dialing out from a Teams meeting so other people can join it.

As the meeting organizer, you can dial out using the Skype for Business app to let other people join the same meeting using their phone. Although it's not required, when you are dialing out to someone, it's recommended that you dial the full number, including the country/region code. To get dial-out to work:

  • You can dial-out only if you join a meeting using a Skype for Business app.

  • You as the meeting organizer have been enabled for audio conferencing.
