Joining Voice or Video Calls

When someone starts a voice or video call, the other members of the Conversation will receive a notification and a message will appear within the Conversation.

To join just click the browser or app notification, or manually select the Conversation in which the call was started, then click the “Join” button.

Using the Call Functions

Once you have started or joined a voice or video call, blue bar within the call window includes the following options (from left to right):

  • Mute or unmute your microphone
  • Turn your camera on or off
  • Start or stop screen sharing
  • Enter or exit full screen
  • Leave the call

The call does not end until the final person leaves the call. If the call is ongoing, anyone can join the call again.

Using the Voice, Video, and Screen Sharing Features on Mobile

TABLE Conversations can be accessed on mobile devices through our Agent apps or mobile browsers. Mobile supports voice and video calls the same as desktop. Customers and Agents cannot share their screen on mobile, but they can view someone else’s screen share.
