To use an Echo device as a speakerphone

  2. Choose Room profiles, choose the name of the room profile associated with your meeting rooms, and enable Outbound calling.

  3. Choose Conferencing, Add provider.

  4. Choose one of the available conferencing providers, which automatically fills in the Provider pane.

    Note

    If the conference provider used by your organization is not available, choose Custom conferencing provider.

  5. Review the following settings and edit them as necessary:

    • Meeting settings – Specify whether a meeting PIN is required to join the meeting. (Required)

    • PSTN dial-in number – Specify the phone number of your conferencing provider. This must be a US phone number.

    • PSTN dial-in delays – Specify the delays before the meeting ID and PIN are sent using DTMF.

  7. (Optional) To join scheduled meetings, link your calendar to Alexa for Business. For more information, see Link Alexa for Business to Your Calendar System.

You can now say “Alexa, join my meeting” and Alexa prompts you to join the scheduled meeting or to provide the ID of the meeting to join.
