How Does A Conference Call Work?

A conference call is a telephone call in which two or more people participate in the same call, enabling them to hear and speak to each other. Conference calls can be initiated using a landline telephone, a mobile phone, or through a computer using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology.

Here’s how a typical conference call works:

  1. Participants dial into the conference call using a phone number and access code provided by the host.
  2. Once all participants are connected, the host starts the call and everyone can hear and speak to each other.
  3. Some conference call services also offer additional features such as screen sharing, recording, and call management, allowing the host to manage the call and participants.

Conference calls are widely used for business meetings, remote work, and personal gatherings. They provide a convenient and cost-effective way for people to connect and collaborate, regardless of their location.
