About host plans

There are three subscription plans: Basic host, Business host, and Enterprise host

A host is a person who has the ability to create unlimited meetings. This includes instant and scheduled meetings but only one meeting at a time can occur. When scheduling a meeting, hosts can set their meeting to start either when they join or when other users join.

About meeting licenses

Hosts can only have one ongoing meeting at a time. Select a meeting type from below to find out more about how a host’s meeting license is affected:

Scheduled meeting

A scheduled meeting takes up a meeting license when it starts (you can configure how meetings start when you schedule them). Hosts will be unable to join or host another meeting while their scheduled meeting is ongoing. Attempting to do so, results in a prompt for them to End other meeting. Ending the scheduled meeting disconnects all current participants.

Meet now

Starting an instant meeting takes up a meeting license. Hosts will be unable to join or host another meeting while their instant meeting is still ongoing. Attempting to do so, results in a prompt for them to End other meeting. Ending the instant meeting disconnects all current participants.

Ad hoc

If you add another person to a one-to-one call, this escalates the call into an ad hoc meeting. An ad hoc meeting takes up a meeting license. Hosts will unable to join or host another meeting while their ad hoc meeting is ongoing. Attempting to do so, results in a prompt for them to End other meeting. Ending the ad hoc meeting disconnects all current participants.

Permanent meeting

A permanent meeting only takes up a meeting license when there are participants in the meeting. Hosts will be unable to join or host another meeting while their permanent meeting has participants in it. Attempting to do so, results in a prompt for them to End other meeting. Ending the permanent meeting disconnects all current participants.
