How to Make a Conference Call on Android

Conference calls are a convenient way to connect with multiple people at once, whether it’s for business meetings or catching up with friends and family. Android devices make it easy to initiate and participate in conference calls with just a few simple steps.

Step 1: Open the Phone App

To start a conference call on your Android device, open the phone app by tapping on the phone icon typically found on your home screen or app drawer.

Step 2: Dial the First Number

To initiate a conference call, you’ll need to dial the first number. Tap on the number pad icon if it’s not already visible and dial the desired number. Alternatively, you can select a contact from your phonebook or call history by tapping on the respective tab.

Step 3: Add Participants

Once you have connected with the first person, you can add more participants to join the conference call. Look for an option called “Add Call” or “Merge Calls” depending on your device and phone app version.

Note: Some carriers may limit the number of participants you can add to a conference call. Check with your service provider if you encounter any issues.

Add Participants via Dial Pad

If you know the numbers of additional participants, tap on “Add Call” or similar option and dial their numbers one by one using the dial pad. Once connected, look for an option to merge all calls together into a single conference call.

Add Participants from Contacts

If you want to add participants from your contacts list, tap on “Add Call” and select contacts from your phonebook. You can choose multiple contacts by tapping on each one. Once selected, look for the merge option to join all calls into a conference call.

Step 4: Manage the Conference Call

During a conference call, you can manage various options depending on your device and phone app. Some common options include:

  • Mute/Unmute: Tap on the microphone button to mute or unmute yourself during the call.
  • Hold: If you need to put the conference call on hold, look for a hold button or option.
  • End Individual Calls: If you want to end a specific participant’s call without disconnecting others, find an option to end individual calls.
  • End Conference Call: To disconnect all participants and end the conference call, look for an option specifically labeled as “End Call” or “Disconnect”.

Step 5: Troubleshooting

If you encounter any issues during your conference calls, here are some troubleshooting tips:

  • Check Network Connection: Ensure that you have a stable internet connection or strong cellular signal to avoid call drops or poor audio quality.
  • Contact Your Service Provider: If you frequently experience issues with conference calls, reach out to your service provider for assistance and ensure that your plan supports this feature.

Congratulations! You now know how to make a conference call on your Android device. Enjoy connecting with multiple people effortlessly using this convenient feature!
