Choose one of the options on the screen. You have the opportunity to download the Microsoft Teams app to your laptop/computer/smart phone, continue to the meeting using the browser (the most popular choice) and to open the meeting in your Microsoft Teams app that you have already installed.

Make the selection most applicable to you.

In some instances, cameras and microphones are not allowed depending on the meeting type. Once you are happy with the settings, click the Join button to be taken to the meeting room.
