Your Personal Meeting Room is a virtual meeting room permanently reserved for you that you can access with your Personal Meeting ID (PMI) or personal link, if applicable. You can start instant on-demand meetings with your PMI, or you can schedule a meeting that uses your PMI.

Your Personal Meeting ID becomes your Personal Meeting URL.
