How to Make a Conference Call on an Android Phone

A conference call is one where you call multiple people at the same time, and you can all speak to each other. Using your Android phone, you make one call and then add a second call. Touch a button on the phone’s touchscreen and then everyone is talking. Here’s how it works:

  1. Phone the first person.

  2. After your phone connects and you complete a few pleasantries, touch the Add Call button.

    The first person is put on hold.

  3. Dial the second person.

    You can use the dialpad or choose the second person from the phone’s address book or a recent call from the call log.

    Say your pleasantries and inform the party that the call is about to be merged.

  4. Touch the Merge or Merge Calls button.

    The two calls are now joined: The touchscreen says Conference Call, and the End Last Call button appears. Everyone you’ve dialed can talk to and hear everyone else.

  5. Touch the End Call button to end the conference call.

    All calls are disconnected.

When several people are in a room and want to participate in a call, you can always put the phone in Speaker mode: Touch the Speaker button.

Your Android phone may feature the Manage button while you’re in a conference call. Touch this button to list the various calls, to mute one, or to select a call to disconnect.
