Zoom Call-Out Feature

— Written By

Zoom offers a Call-Out feature that allows you to dial a participant to let them join the audio by telephone.

Please note:

  • Your office is charged every time someone uses this feature in a meeting or webinar hosted by someone who is a part of our Zoom account. Rates are listed in the “Pay as You Go” column in this rate chart.
  • When the person you invite in by telephone answers the call from Zoom, they will hear a prompt to press 1 to be connected to the meeting/webinar audio.
  • You must request this feature to be added to your account ahead of time for your account to be subscribed to this feature. Complete this form to request Zoom Call-Out. The form requests your NC State University billing information.


You can use this feature on a Windows or Mac computer, or in the Zoom mobile app on iOS or Android.
