How to Make a Conference Call on Your Amazon Fire Phone

By Dan Gookin

Unlike someone interrupting a conversation by making an incoming call to your Fire phone, a conference call is one you set out to make intentionally: You make one call and then add a second call. Touch an icon on the phone’s touchscreen and then everyone is talking. Here’s how it works:

  1. Phone the first person.

    The call connects and you exchange pleasantries.

  2. After the first call is established, touch the Add Call icon.

    The first person is put on hold and the Contacts list is displayed.

  3. Choose the second person from the phone’s address book, or tap the Keypad icon to dial the second number.

    When viewing the address book, tilt the phone or swipe in from the right to display the VIPs panel.

    After the call connects, say your pleasantries and inform the party that the call is about to be merged.

  4. Touch the Merge button.

    The two calls are now joined: The touchscreen says “Conference Call” and the other caller’s IDs are listed. Everyone you’ve dialed can talk to and hear everyone else.

  5. Touch the End Call icon 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 icon on the Ongoing Call screen.
