What permissions does the Android app require?

When you install the GoToMeeting app for Android on your device, the app will request permission to access different features on your Android device to run properly. While some of the permissions may sound scary, keep in mind that almost all apps require certain permissions to run features. Below is a table of the features that the app is requesting permission to, with an explanation of why the app is requesting permission for this specific feature.

FeatureHow GoToMeeting uses this Information

Calendar
Imports calendar information

The app will check your device's Calendar app for upcoming sessions and show them within the app, allowing you to more easily view and join sessions.

Phone
Directly calls cell phone numbers; reads phone status and identity

The app will use your device's Phone app to dial in to the audio conferences using PSTN (should you choose to do so) by tapping the switch to phone button in the app's audio tab. The app also reads the state of phone calls to mute or disconnect from the session audio so that the meeting audio does not interrupt your phone call.
Camera
Broadcasts your webcam
The app will use your device's camera to broadcast your webcam to other attendees (should you choose to share it).

Microphone
Connects to the audio conferences

The app will use your microphone to share your voice with others in the meeting, as well as include in the session recording.

Device ID and call information
Identify the status of a session

The app will use the information to identify your device when it calls in to the session and detect whether a session is active or not.
