    Article Summary

    The Dialpad Meetings iOS app allows users to start and join meetings from their iOS devices. To begin, users must download and install the app and ensure their device is running iOS 16 or above. The app provides a dashboard where users can check meeting information, start or join meetings, access their profile, and adjust app settings. Users can start a meeting by selecting "Start Your Meeting" and choosing whether to join with video or audio only. They can also invite participants during an active meeting by selecting "More" and then "Invite Others." To join a meeting, users can search for the meeting name or navigate to the Upcoming Meetings section. The app allows users to view up to 5 participants' video streams at once and switch between sharing their screen and viewing others in the meeting. Users can access meeting controls by tapping anywhere on the screen, including meeting details, participant information, chat conversations, and more. The app also offers features like scheduling meetings, customizing profiles, adjusting notification settings, and accessing support resources.
