GoToWebinar App for Android FAQs
Need some help? Get answers to some frequently asked questions regarding the Android app below.
Can I use the app to join GoToWebinar sessions?
If you’re running Android 5 or higher, you can install the GoToMeeting app from the Google Play Store to join GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar sessions as an attendee. If you're a GoToMeeting organizer, you can log in and schedule and start a meeting from the app, but you won't yet be able to share your screen, so we recommend making someone else who joined the meeting from a Windows or Mac the presenter or co-organizer.
We recommend using devices with a 1Ghz processor or higher for optimal performance.
How can I download the GoToWebinar app?
You can download the GoToWebinar app from the Google Play Store by logging in to your Google account that's linked with your Android device and searching for the GoToMeeting app. If you don’t see an Install button, you may not be running Android 4.4 or higher (the minimum system requirement needed to install the GoToWebinar app).
What are the minimum system requirements for joining a GoToWebinar session from my Android device?
- Android 5 or higher
- 1 Ghz CPU or higher recommended
- WiFi or 3G connection (WiFi and headset recommended)
- Free GoToMeeting App from Google Play
How do I join a meeting on my calendar from the app?
Meetings in the Android Calendar app sync with the GoToMeeting app so you will see a list of your upcoming meetings on the home screen. You can quickly join a meeting by tapping the name of the meeting.
Can I schedule meetings from the GoToMeeting app?
Yes, you can schedule meetings from the GoToMeeting app by tapping the Schedule a Meeting button. You can then select whether or not is a recurring meeting, choose the audio and edit phone numbers. You can also edit meetings and invite others from the GoToMeeting app.
Can I host GoToWebinar sessions on the app?
Unfortunately, you can't start webinars from your Android device at this time. However, you can start webinars from a computer and then join (as an organizer) from an Android device as a secondary app. This will help with managing attentiveness and likes.
What are some of the unsupported GoToWebinar features?
Organizers and panelists can't do the following:
- Host a GoToWebinar session
- Join a session from a panelist invitation email
- Share their screen or accept Presenter Control
Can I record a session from my Android?
No, you cannot currently record sessions from an Android device.
Can I chat from the app?
Yes, all attendees, organizers and presenters in a meeting can chat by tapping the Chat icon in the toolbar, entering a message and tapping Send. You can choose to chat with everyone in the meeting or privately with another person in the meeting. When you receive a Chat message, the Chat icon will bounce in the keyboard toolbar.
Chat is currently unsupported for GoToWebinar.
Why do I see an “Unable to Join the Meeting” error telling me that the Meeting ID is invalid?
If you manually entered the Meeting ID, double check to see that you typed it correctly.
Why do I have to enable cookies to join? How do I enable cookies on my browser?
If your browser is set to disable cookies, you must first enable cookies before you can join a session. To enable cookies, go to your browser's settings and select Accept Cookies.
I prefer to dial in to the audio conference by telephone. Where can I find the Audio PIN?
You do not need an Audio PIN to dial in to the audio conference by telephone. To dial in to the audio conference by telephone, you can set your default audio to Phone by going to the Settings tab and selecting the Phone icon next to Default Audio. If your default audio is set to Phone and you join a meeting from an Android device, you will be automatically dialed in to the meeting.
You can see if you are connected to the meeting by VoIP or telephone in the Audio tab. If the organizer has provided dial-in phone numbers, you can switch to telephone by tapping Switch to Phone in the Audio Tab. In the Audio tab, you'll see a list of phone numbers associated with the session. If the organizer provides international country numbers, you can choose which country you want to dial into. Once you tap Dial, you will automatically dial in to the conference from your Phone app and will need to navigate back to the GoToMeeting app to return to the session.
Why am I disconnected from GoToMeeting when I try dialing in from my phone?
If you’re using a device that doesn’t allow simultaneous data and voice sharing (CDMA), you must connect to the Internet from a WiFi network to dial in using the same device you use to join the session; otherwise, you’ll be disconnected from GoToMeeting. If you aren’t connected to the Internet through WiFi, you must use your device’s mic and speakers (VoIP) or dial in with a different device to connect to audio.
