How to Conference Call on iPhone

Conferencing on the iPhone used to be a complicated process that could result in dropped calls and annoying glitches. But those days are thankfully behind us. The introduction of online video chat apps has made conferencing on the phone easy and glitch-free. In this blog post, we'll dive into the secrets of online communication on iPhone smartphones and meet one of the top solutions for virtual meetups.

iPhones and Conference calling

What is conference calling?

Simply put, it's the process of connecting multiple people into a single line. Such calls can be either audio or video and usually are made with the help of special software or through a conference bridge number.

Conference calling is widely popular in the business world, but can also be used for other purposes such as digital learning or private chats with relatives and friends.

How does it work on iPhones?

There are a few different ways of setting up conference calls on an iPhone. One way is to use the built-in tool. It allows you to add up to five people for a chat. Another way to connect multiple people on your mobile is to download an app like RingCentral or Whoosh. Such software allows users to add more than 5 participants to a virtual room and offers additional features such as screen sharing, cloud recordings, app integrations, and more.

Let's start with the first option - the native phone app.

Option 1: use the built-in tool

Our team has prepared a short guide on how to start a conference call with the phone app. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Choose the first number you want to dial and tap the Call icon.
  2. After the first person answers, tap Add at the current call window.
  3. Dial the second number you want to invite to the chat.
  4. While the first participant remains on hold, the second one is being connected. Now tap Merge calls.
  5. Repeat all the actions to add the remaining participants.
  6. To finish the conversation, tap the End call icon.

Remember: No more than 5 people can enter the conversation. To get more information about this type of connection, we recommend visiting the official Apple website.

What else to try during an iPhone conference?

  • Divide the virtual room by tapping Private next to a person you want to talk to one-on-one. Others will be put on hold.
  • Say goodbye to a chosen participant from the information window by tapping End on the desired number.

Option 2: use a special app

Have an urge to connect with distant co-workers, who are spread between various places in the world? Want to organize a 70-person webinar? Or just have a zero balance on your phone and need to arrange an urgent appointment?
