Hosting multiple meetings simultaneously

Hosting concurrent, or simultaneous, meetings means that the same user is hosting more than one meeting at the same time, and this capability depends on your account and license type.

Each Basic user and Licensed user on a Pro account is limited to hosting only 1 meeting at a time.

Licensed users on Business, Education, and Enterprise accounts can host up to 2 meetings at the same time. Both meetings need to be started by the original meeting host or by an alternative host. The host can leave the meeting and pass host privileges to another user if needed.

Note: While these users can have 2 meetings active at the same time, this is typically achieved by the meetings being started and run on separate devices, as by default users are unable to join or start multiple meetings simultaneously on the desktop client.
