From the perspective of the developer, a meet-now meeting is a multi-party capable audio conference that is started programmatically with a single method call. There is no need to configure a conference object with the modalities needed to start the meet-now meeting. The call to the Automation.BeginMeetNow method starts an operation that activates an audio conference on Microsoft Lync Server 2013 that can be joined immediately. The Automation.EndMeetNow method returns a Microsoft.Lync.Model.Extensibility.ConversationWindow hosts the meet-now meeting and can be docked in your application. The ConversationWindow object gives you programmatic access to the meeting so that you can manage meeting access, presenters, and participant video.
The meet-now meeting is not supported in UI suppression mode.
