How to conference call on Samsung Galaxy S5

Got stuck trying to figure out how to start a conference call on Samsung Galaxy S5? We’re here to help you get your bearings and offer the best solution for online meetings!

Making phone calls with a native app

Conference calling can be a great way to keep in touch with coworkers or clients when you can't meet in person. But if you're not used to making such calls on the Samsung Galaxy S5, it can be a little confusing at first. Here are some simple steps to help you get started:

  1. Open the phone's address book with all your contacts and dial the first contact you want to invite to the conversation.
  2. Once that person picks up, hit the "Add Call" icon and dial the second contact.
  3. To connect two calls and switch to conference mode, tap the "Merge" icon.
  4. Repeat these actions until everybody has successfully entered the chat. You can also send the conference reference to everyone who's going to be present.
  5. To finish the session, tap the "End Call" icon.

Sounds easy, doesn’t it? But are there any downsides?

Tips from our team

Despite being one of the easiest ways to set up a conference with multiple participants on a smartphone, this way of communication has its drawbacks. And you can either accept them or choose another way to keep in touch with your colleagues or customers.

So what things to bear in mind?

  • Conferencing via the Samsung native app has its limitations regarding the number of participants. Usually, it's 5.
  • The operator's costs can be rather high, especially if you often phone abroad.
  • Your service provider may also set limits on a conference duration.
  • Various Samsung models may differ in the way a conference call is conducted, that's why it's always a good idea to consult the official Samsung website for additional information.

If you are going to organize a long-lasting conference using Samsung S5 with more than a dozen participants, modern platforms for online video meetings serve as the most reliable solution.
