Meet Now, Meet Later and Permanent Rooms

The new lobby provides you with everything you need:

  • Meet Now instantly jumps into a new meeting
  • Meet Later generates a new random meeting link (e.g. https://meet.around.co/NEW_MEETING_ID ) so you can simply paste it into your calendar when scheduling or send as a message
  • Rooms allow you to create permanent rooms, which are ideal for recurring meetings such as daily standups, design meetings, backlog grooming meetings, etc.
  • /around command in Slack now generates a new random meeting ID

When you sign up, your personal room is created by default. As you schedule more recurring meetings, you can simply create more rooms and define your nice looking URL for them.

You can also set the room to be Audio-first, at that point, the video is turned off by default, which we sometimes find great for team hangouts, when we work together over a few hours.

You can create as many rooms as you want. It's worth noting that there are many enhancements to the rooms we are now working on that will make them even more powerful and provide you with more privacy controls. Stay tuned!
