2. In your ntouch® device, dial the phone number.

3. Tell the interpreter that you are joining a Google Meet meeting. Give the interpreter the PIN if there is one next to the phone number.

NOTE: Telephone call-in options are only included if the meeting organizer has a Google Workspace account. If your invitation does not have a phone number listed, ask the meeting organizer if they can add it. At this time non-Workspace accounts cannot have phone numbers included.
