Instant Meetings and Scheduled Meetings

Start an instant meeting with GoToMeeting in seconds or schedule meetings for another time

Whenever works for you.

Scheduling a meeting with remote attendees is no longer the hassle it once was. Thanks to video conferencing, everyone can connect together easily. All you need is to decide who to invite to the discussion – and when to host the meeting. Fortunately, GoToMeeting is as flexible as you are. If you need to meet immediately, no problem. Start an instant meeting with just one click thanks to our online instant scheduling. If you’d like to host a webinar with a big group, schedule meetings on the calendar for later.

Meet now. Meet later.

GoToMeeting works wonders as an instant-meeting app. Trying to hammer out an issue? Skip the endless emails and phone calls. They only slow you down, because you can’t collaborate live on your work or communicate face to face. With GoToMeeting, you can host a meeting, invite others and share your screen and webcam in no time. GoToMeeting makes it easy to schedule a meeting, too. You can plan one-off sessions or set them to happen regularly. Either way, you can send out meeting invitations with all the details your participants need to know, including the meeting ID, when the meeting starts, how to join and which devices they can use. Then when the meeting time rolls around, connecting is as simple as clicking a link.
