Meetings end in one of three ways.
  1. For a one-to-one VoIP call, a meeting ends when one of the two attendees chooses End.
  2. For scheduled, instant or group meetings with more than 2 attendees, the organizer or their delegates on a call chooses End and then End for All.
  3. The Chime system will automatically end a meeting under the following conditions:
    1. For scheduled meetings, if the organizer or their delegates have NOT Ended a Meeting for All and NO attendees are connected, a meeting will be ended at it's scheduled end time.
    2. For scheduled meetings that run long and instant or group meetings, a meeting will be ended after all attendees disconnect from the meeting. Chime checks every 5 minutes to ensure no attendees are connected and will then end the meeting.
    3. For scheduled meetings that run long and instant or group meetings, a meeting will be ended if a single attendee has been connected, with no audio state changes, for 30 minutes.
    4. For scheduled meetings that run long and instant or group meetings, a meeting will be ended if there are multiple attendees but no audio activity for 6 hours.
  4. While meetings may run continuously for several days, it is recommended that the host or their delegate(s) end a meeting (End > End meeting for All) every 24 hours. Attendees can be asked to dial back into the meeting with the same meeting ID and continue the meeting. In these types of situations, we also recommend coordinating and maintaining a chat room for the attendees outside the meeting chat which will provide a persistent source of meeting discussions across the multi-day event.
