Join a Skype Meeting Broadcast

You can join a Skype Meeting Broadcast in much the same way as you join other Skype for Business meetings. You can join as an attendee or as an event team member.

You will receive an invitation to the Skype Meeting Broadcast. The invitation will look similar to other Skype for Business or Lync meeting invitations. You accept the invitation as you would other meetings and the event will be added to your calendar.

The Skype Meeting Broadcast can either be an anonymous meeting or a closed meeting.
