Using Call to Video in the mobile app 

Last updated on February 14, 2022
The call to video feature in the mobile app allows you to switch from a voice call to a video meeting or screen share call. Call to video makes it easier to share your screen or video camera because you don’t have to hang up your voice call and schedule a meeting with the person you are speaking with to start a meeting with them.

Call to video is available if you have selected video as your video service in the mobile app. To configure your video settings, visit Configuring Video settings on the mobile app.

Using Call to Video

If you and other users in a live call are using the app, you can use the call to video feature to quickly switch the call to a meeting or share your screen. If others in the call are not using the app, they will stay on the call as a voice-only or dial-in participant in the video meeting.
 
Let’s discuss below the options you have when using call to video in the app.

1:1 Call to Video

If you and the other user in a live call are both using the desktop or mobile app, any of you can start a meeting with the other person. To start a one-on-one call to video in the mobile app during a live call, tap the Video button and then tap Switch to video from the dropdown menu.
 
You will be switched from the active call to an active video meeting and the active call window will be closed. The voice is carried over to the meeting and the voice in the active call will be dropped.

If you close the share window screen, the call will return to an active video meeting screen.

Multi-way Call to Video

The mobile app allows you to have a multi-way calling where multiple parties can participate in a call. If the live call has been converted into a conference call via the Add plus button instead of a conference bridge, you can switch your conference call to a video meeting or share your screen with multiple participants. To learn more about converting a live call into a conference call, Starting a conference call in the mobile app.
 
To start call to video with multiple participants in the mobile app, tap the Video button and then tap Switch to video from the dropdown menu.
 
Your call will be switched from the active call to an active video meeting. Once you are in the meeting, the other users who are using desktop or mobile app will be switched to the meeting as well. If you and other users are using desktop and mobile app, the audio will be carried over to the meeting and the audio in the active call will be dropped. Any user who is not using the desktop or mobile app will be automatically added as a voice-only or dial-in participant with their number to the video meeting.
