AshC is correct, but be aware that that method does not put those people in the Attendee list.
Unfortunately not everyone has internet access, or reliable internet.
And that's the rub. The moderator/organizer needs to be able to control all mics.
I know gotomeeting is more of a 'meeting' application, but it's missing some functions.. primarily the hand raise, but also the ability to include documents for people to download.
These are municiple and school board meetings, which have to be open to the public. I'm doing everything I can to keep people from using Zoom, but zoom has the handraise function where gotomeeting does not. And if gotowebinar can't accomodate call-ins whose mics can be controlled, then we're looking at a mess of noise, interuptions, etc.
Let's say that GoTo implemented this feature and you had 10 phone callers in addition to the regular webinar Attendees, would they all be labeled as "phone caller" in the Attendee list, or would you want it to list the phone number, like "800-555-1234"?
How would you know who to unmute? How will you know a phone caller needs to speak? Do you just go down the line and say, "I've just unmuted the first caller to talk. Are you there?" Or do you unmute all of them at once?
What would be exceedingly useful to any small local government agency hosting remote board meetings is:

@pcollins Thanks for your feedback. We have plans to expand the webcam options in GoToWebinar down the line. I'm sorry I don't have an ETA yet.
The sooner, the better.
We'd certainly welcome that change, along with mschauber's comments above, as it would make the "Open Meetings Act" requirements the Public Sector lives under much easier to achieve via GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar.
I logged a quesiton on this one, with detailed use cases and scenarios.
To me, this is a security concer
