Join Conference, a Microsoft Garage project, makes it easy to dial into conference calls. No more switching to the calendar app, remembering the ID/PIN codes, getting the right access number, switching to the phone app, making the call, and entering all the codes. Instead just hit one button or, even easier, join by voice command. It’s very handy for anyone that makes frequent conference calls. Join via voice by speaking to Cortana "JOIN MY CONFERENCE". We'll automatically figure out which meeting is going on currently or about to start, speak it back to you for confirmation, and connect you. The easiest way to connect to a meeting is having your virtual assistant do it for you! Join Conference should work with all conference systems, whatever your company might use. For most systems, it dials the appropriate phone number, ID, and PIN touch tones, including any special codes required when you’re the meeting leader. For Lync and GoToMeeting conferences it launches the associated app to join. Settings for many companies’ conference systems are stored on our server and recognized automatically. For those that aren't, you can define the settings yourself (then you should share them with us, to spare your coworkers the trouble). If you find a conference system that doesn’t work well with the app for some reason, please let us know. If you have issues getting a particular meeting to work, tap on the meeting in the app and pick "send feedback" off the menu, to email it to us. We'll take a look and email you back with any questions. We need that kind of real world feedback to improve the app. Microsoft Garage turns fresh ideas into real projects.

problems detecting conference pin
Does not properly detect pin for most of my meetings, and it does not have the ability to manage them manually. This makes it useless for those meetings. If they add the ability to enter a custom pin, or fix the issue with detecting the pin, it will be brilliant. When it works, it is fantastic. Great idea for an app.More
I have a lot of conference calls as I work remotely. This app is a lifesaver. I no longer have to double check calendar meetings invites and codes to make sure I'm calling the right number and typing in the code fast enough respond.More
Does not work anymore!
It uses to work great, but know it stopped working properly. It now wants to dial the meeting ID code twice in a row and I can to seem to edit the setting to stop it from doing this!More
Like the idea, but cannot configure a conference system! It says to tap the gear on the main page but with no conference, no gear to click on?More
This is great. Works flawlessly with the conference calls in my calendar so far.More
Would be perfect if Cortana integration worked. As pointed out by many, Cortana starts planning a new meeting after receiving "JOIN CONFERENCE" command instead of launching the appMore
Great app! Cortana integration is broken. Keeps on trying to add a new event to my calendar.More
Fantastic app if we use outlook or similar application, but does not integrate with professional apps like good-Enterprise. Nevertheless is a fantastic app that saves me a lot of timesMore
Works great for me - Pinned it to my start screen - keep these coming!More
Works great. The only beef I have with it is that it complains that I have turned off the Background Agent every time I start it. I turn off background apps for almost everything to maximize battery power. I see no reason why it needs to do background processing, so I wish there was a way to turn off the complaint box.More
