Every Microsoft Teams meeting has a unique meeting ID, similar to a meeting invite link. To join a meeting using the meeting ID, go to any web or in-product Teams entry point and enter the meeting ID where indicated. Learn more about how to join a Teams meeting.

You can find the meeting ID on your email invite. If you didn’t receive a meeting invite, contact the meeting host to request the meeting ID.
If you’re using a Teams personal account, you can only join a meeting using the meeting invite link.

The meeting ID should be long enough to prevent someone from guessing it by randomly typing a number to connect to a meeting, but it doesn’t add increased security to the meeting and doesn’t serve as a PIN or password. For meeting security, be sure to use security features such as a meeting lobby to send uninvited guests to the lobby, meeting do not forward, meeting options, meeting lock, and meetings policies.. The security features in Teams function the same way whether attendees join by link or meeting ID. Learn more.

You can have a Teams meeting on any device (Windows, iOS, Android, or Linux) or on the web. See the specific hardware requirements for meeting using the Teams app.

Yes. With Teams, you can host meetings with people inside and outside your organization. When you schedule a meeting in Teams or Microsoft Outlook using the desktop app or on the web, you can send the unique meeting ID or meeting link to anyone. When meeting with external participants, a meeting lobby can help add increased security to limit uninvited guests. Learn more.
