      @Jdad, thanks for the question. 3CX Webmeeting is only available for people to connect using a web browser and requires a microphone connected to the PC to participate with audio.

    We previously activated webmeeting on a previous version and so have 10 participants licence showing. We have valid maintenance, so should we be able to take advantage of the 25 participants offer? If so how to do this please.

      @Chris, thanks for the question. To activate your web meeting portal to allow 25 participants, delete the portal and re-create it.

    not seeing much info on the WebMeeting iOS App and how to use this. Is a user manual available?

    • @Craig – Download webmeeting app, invite a participant, open email from ios and click to join.. ​User from iOS should join the meeting. From then onwards the usage is self explanatory. Documentation coming soon..

      Thanks. I wasn’t sure if it allowed Ad-Hoc meetings. Looks like right now you need the meeting URL and can join only.
      This is a great advancement.
