Zoom has temporarily disabled the telephone options for webinar attendees in Zoom version 5.2.3 across all platforms (Windows, macOS, iOS, Android) and plan to re-enable them in the next few weeks. In the meantime, attendees may connect to Webinar audio through the Zoom desktop client, web client, or mobile app.
Webinar hosts and panelists can still join by telephone, as well as through computer audio. All phone features for webinar attendees have been disabled for the time being, but panelists are unaffected.
Faculty and staff have to join Dr. Kress’ office hours through their computer or mobile phone app, and cannot just dial in to the phone number.
Please note that this Zoom change only affects Zoom webinars for large groups, not regular Zoom meetings or classes.
