Or, if you have Touch ID enabled, you can log into your site using your fingerprints.
You can configure your meeting list to pull meetings directly from your O365 Exchange server, via your in-app settings.
You can join a Webex meeting from your Android device in any of the following ways.

You'll be taken to a mobile page which offers an easy way to join the audio-only meeting. After the meeting, you'll be shown a redirected page that offers the mobile app download for future meetings.
Using voice commands
For information on joining meetings using voice commands, see https://help.webex.com/itrfd/Use-Voice-Commands-on-Your-Mobile-Device.
From a notification
If your site is set up to send notifications, you'll be alerted prior to the scheduled meeting time, or when the host starts the meeting. To join, follow the instructions in the meeting notifications.
Note: When you join a meeting that is being held in the host's Personal Room, you'll wait in the lobby until the host manually admits you. When the host enters the room or admits you, you'll be prompted to join the audio conference. You can select 'Notify Host' to alert the host that you're waiting in the lobby.
By scanning text
Use the handwriting recognition built into the Meetings app. Just scan a handwritten or typed meeting number or Personal Room ID, on a physical piece of paper or a screen, to join the Webex Meeting or Personal Room.
You can connect to the meeting's audio conference by receiving a call, or by using VoIP through the Internet. When you join an audio conference that has been scheduled to use Webex Audio or VoIP only, wide-band audio is used.
Note: If a participant who doesn't have wide-band audio joins a meeting where wide-band audio is in use, audio for all participants is downgraded. No warning message is given before the downgrade.

Participants can't enter your Personal Room when you're not there. And, once you've entered your personal room, you control access.
When you've locked your Personal Room and a participant enters the lobby, a notification message is displayed and a red indicator appears above the 'Participants' icon.
While your meeting is in progress, you can speak and chat with participants, view presentations shared by participants, and share your video or screen.

Note: You can't reclaim the host role from your Android device.
You can edit the displayed name of 'Call-in' users in your participant lists with other names for better identification. Guest users can edit it locally only, while signed in hosts are able to edit it for all users.

In an online meeting on Android, you can annotate on a screen share, simultaneously in real time to annotate, highlight, explain, or point to information, while desktop users are annotating on the same screen.

You can search for your recording by title using the search box on the screen.
