Dialpad Meetings for Android allows Android Users to start and join meetings from anywhere, not just on a computer.
Let’s take a look at the Dialpad Meetings app for Android devices.
Your Android device must be running Android Oreo, or above.
Download the App
To begin, download and install the Dialpad Meetings app from the Google Play Store.

Dialpad Meetings' dashboard allows you to quickly check meeting information, start a meeting, join a meeting, and access app settings.
To launch the slide-out menu, select your profile picture in the top-left corner of the app.
Start a Meeting
To start a Dialpad Meeting, select Start Meeting.
Next, decide if you’d like to join with video, or only audio.
Toggle the Microphone icon for audio and the Camera icon for video.
Once you’ve set your preferences, select Join With Video.
If you don’t want to send or receive any video (perhaps in order to conserve data usage) select More Options > Audio Only. It will then not turn on your camera during the meeting, or display the other Participants’ videos.
More Options also lets you opt-in to viewing a screen share only and request a dial-in to the meeting rather than needing to join via the app.
Invite Participants During Meeting
Participants are able to join using the meeting's URL, but if you are the organizer, you can also navigate to the More tab and select Invite Others.
