Joining a Skype for Business meeting with audio only is to be used by attendees that do not have a computer or for those that prefer to use a phone for audio. If the Meeting request includes a dial-in phone number and conference ID, then the attendee will be able to call into the meeting.

  1. Dial the conference number listed in the meeting request using your phone.
  2. Enter the Conference ID followed by the # sign using the phone's dial pad.
  3. Follow the instructions when prompted.
  4. A PIN number may be required if you're the meeting organizer and calling from a phone that isn't connected to your account or the meeting is secured. If a PIN is required, enter it now.

Note: Press *1 on your phone to get a list of options you can use when in the meeting.

You may need to verify that your audio and video are not muted and are turned on by looking at the phone and video camera icon.  For more information and help with audio/video problems, please see Troubleshooting in a Skype (Lync) Meeting for more information.
