When a video conference participant using a desktop or other fixed device temporarily leaves their location, they lose access to the full conferencing experience, unless they take manual action to join the video conference via a mobile or wearable device. This disclosure describes techniques that, with user permission, automatically detect when a user leaves a physical location from where they have joined a video conference. The techniques further detect mobile and/or wearable devices available to the user and automatically configure such devices for video conferencing. A link to join the video conference via such a device is provided to the user, and upon user selection, the video conference session is seamlessly transferred to the available device.
