MeetMe with Dolby Voice

Click on a topic to learn how to use MeetMe with Dolby Voice


Is there any limit to the number of people in a conference?
The maximum number of participants in any one call is 125.
Can I use other software on my PC while in a MeetMe with Dolby Voice meeting?
Yes, although software that consumes a high level of processing power or bandwidth of your internet connection may reduce the audio quality on your individual line.
Can I use other collaborative tools whilst using the system?
Yes, the service is designed to work alongside other tools such as Cisco Webex Meetings and Microsoft Lync.
Which headsets are compatible?
There are many headsets compatible with the system. We recommend a wired USB stereo headset on your computer. Stereo ear buds will work, although the audio quality will not be as good as a USB headset. Non-stereo headsets will not provide the high-quality Dolby sound, but will still work, so may be used if necessary.

The following headsets have been tested by Dolby and approved to work optimally with the MeetMe with Dolby Voice plug-in:

  • Jabra®: BIZ 2400 Duo, Evolve 40 UC, UC Voice 750 Duo, UC Voice 550 Duo, BIZ 2300 Duo, BIZ 2400 II Duo, Evolve 30 Stereo, Evolve 80 Stereo
  • Logitech®: H570e, H650e, HD Webcam C310
  • Plantronics®: C320, C320M, C325, C325.1, C325M, C325M.1, C520, C520M, C720, C720M, C725M, Voyager Focus
  • Sennheiser®: SC 60, SC 60 USB CTRL, SC 260 USB, SC 260 USB CTRL, SC 260 USB CTRL II

Other headsets may work, but are not supported.

How do I get help and support if I have a problem with my service?
If you have read these FAQs and still require help and support you can do this in two ways:
  • If you are in a call by computer, you can get immediate assistance via the operator assistance feature that can be found under the help menu.
  • You can contact the Help desk by phone or email..
How do I invite others to join my meeting?
Your MeetMe with Dolby Voice account email and this user guide both contain information that will help you set up meetings and invite participants to join them. See Inviting people to your meeting.
Why can't I "Reconnect" all users who disconnected from my meeting?
When a user joins your meeting via the Dolby Voice interface, if they elect to use a telephone to dial in to the meeting, or to have the meeting dial out to them, their telephone number is then associated with their "user" within the Dolby Voice meeting viewer. This allows the Dolby Voice interface to provide the ability to 'reconnect' on that number if a telephone user is disconnected:
This image shows a section of the screen where disconnected participants are displayed. One has a 'Reconnect' button available and there is text which says 'User initially connected via Dolby Voice meeting interface dial-in or dial-out - 'Reconnect' available'. The other user does not have a 'Reconnect' button and there is text which says 'User connected via computer (VoIP) or telephone (not via Dolby Voice meeting interface) - 'Reconnect' not available
Can I combine Cisco Webex Meetings and MeetMe with Dolby Voice?
Yes you can, providing you have both a Cisco Webex Meetings and MeetMe with Dolby Voice account supplied by BT. Join your MeetMe with Dolby Voice meeting, once in the meeting you will see a Join screen share button. Click there to start your Cisco Webex Meetings session in another window, allowing you to switch between your audio and web conference windows.
Can I launch and join MeetMe with Dolby Voice calls from a Mac computer?
Yes, the service is fully compatible with Mac operating systems.
Can I join a MeetMe with Dolby Voice meeting from my mobile device?

I can't access the service?
Please re-check the instructions in your MeetMe with Dolby Voice account email. Contact the Help desk if you have re-checked the instructions and are still having problems accessing.
Why doesn't my headset work when I try a self test?
Check your headset is plugged in and properly selected by the Dolby client. We recommend that you plug in your headset at least 30 seconds before you start your call in order for your computer to fully recognize your headset and show this as the active device when you join your conference.
What is the issue if I get the error: No meeting was found for the passcode?
There are two likely causes of this error: either you may have accidentally added a space into the passcode field, maybe as part of a cut and paste, or you may be using the wrong email address in the email field. The system will validate the passcode against the email address for chairpersons, please ensure you use the correct combination. The passcode must have no spaces or other characters, such as #, in the passcode field.
I appear to get a time lag on my call which makes it a little difficult to use, what can I do?
Wi-Fi solutions can introduce delay so it is recommended that you do not connect via Wi-Fi when you have important calls on the Dolby system. Corporate VPN can also sometimes introduce a slight delay that can be quickly improved by logging out of the VPN just before a MeetMe with Dolby Voice meeting. This is a useful tip to share with your participants.
I get echo on some of my calls?
The two primary reasons why echo is introduced into a call are: the use of speaker phones - we strongly recommend that speaker phones are not used for this service; and the Dolby user interface has selected the PC microphone and not the microphone on the headset. If this happened, please select your headset under the Audio settings panel on the user interface.
The audio quality on my calls is variable, how do I improve this?
Audio quality can be affected by many things; Wi-Fi connections can introduce poor quality audio. If in doubt please run a speed check on your computer by going to You want to see at least 100kbs in both upstream and downstream.
The Dolby system will not recognize my headset automatically.
This may happen depending upon the type of headset and interaction with other UC programmes on your PC. Making your headset the default device for playback and recording will often fix this issue. For Windows, right click on the speaker icon in the bottom right of your screen, and select either recording devices or playback devices.

Why can't I download the app?
The app is a free public download available on both the Google Play and Apple App Stores but can only be downloaded by devices running a supported Operating System (OS). If you are unable to download the app from the store, your device is probably running an older OS.
How can I check if my OS is supported?
iOS devices need to be running OS version 7 or later. Go to SETTINGS > GENERAL > ABOUT and look under VERSION.

Android devices need to be running OS version 4.0 or later. Go to your device HOME (push the home button) > MENU (looks like little squares) > SETTINGS + scroll to bottom of the list > ABOUT PHONE + look for FIRMWARE or ANDROID Version.

If your device is running a non-supported OS you may have the option to upgrade your device to a supported version before installing the app.
Why can't I connect to a meeting?
Check that you have entered the meeting details correctly and that you have a Wi-Fi or data connection. If you only have a data connection, check that you have "Use mobile data" enabled in the app.
  • If you do not enter the correct passcode, you will see a message asking you to reconfirm the meeting passcode and your email address.
  • If your device does not have access to a Wi-Fi or mobile data connection, please refer to the meeting invite and dial into the meeting using the phone.
Why am I experiencing poor or variable audio quality on a MeetMe with Dolby Voice call?
The quality of the audio experience will depend on the quality of your Wi-Fi or mobile data connection. If you are on a weak data signal or move into an area where your signal strength drops, you may experience poor audio quality on the call.
How can I monitor my audio quality connection?
To help you understand what is happening the app is constantly monitoring the quality of your connection to the meeting. If you see the red alert icon in the Connection tab, either:
  1. Move to an area of stronger signal strength such as closer to the Wi-Fi router, or
  2. Tap the "Connection" tab, then choose how to reconnect to the meeting by tapping either "Dial in by phone" or "Receive a call back".These options do not use data and will join you to the meeting using the mobile phone network. You will not need to re-enter the meeting passcode.
