When your company needs to contact you, you’ll need to use a phone or desktop call software to do so. However, if your company uses the conference call feature on their phones or desktops, then you should learn how to disable it.
Disabling the conference call feature on Android is very important as it does not support the standard headset connection. This can be problematic for people who use a Bluetooth headset to make a phone call!
We explain how to do this in this article and give some tips on what questions people should ask each other when using this feature. It is always interesting to see what people answer, so we give some hints below.
Find the conference call and tap on it
When a call is in progress, you can tap on the menu button on the phone to disable the call. This is also true when you are finished talking with someone and the call is over.
You can still choose to join a new conference call at any time by pressing and holding on the phone until it vibrates and releases and person being called. Then, you can easily switch between calls.
This feature is available on most Android phones, but not all. Some only allow you to disable or join a conference call once. In that case, this article does not apply, as you would already be joining a current conversation anyway.
Tap on “more options”
When the call is active, you can tap on the “more options” button to temporarily disable the call. This will allow you to take some additional steps before and after the call such as messaging a friend or contacting a company’s customer service.
You can also do this if you plan on checking your email and doing other things while the call is active. You can switch off the call at any time by tapping on “end conversation”.
How to Disable Conference Call on iOS
iOS does not have an official way to disable conference call on your device. However, there are ways to make iOS do this for you. Check out these links below to learn how: i Phone 7 Features, How To Control Phones Via The Apple Home app, and Apples Support Site – Conference Call Disabling Guide.
Tap on “disable conference call”
When this feature is enabled, you cannot just pick up the phone and talk to someone. Instead, you have to click on the “conference” button next to the call display and start a new conversation.
This is useful when you are communicating with someone far away and would like to continue the conversation after the initial greeting. You can do this by clicking on the “conference” button!
It can be handy when collaborating on an electronic project or startup. When your time is up, you can shut down the conference call and start texting or calling whomever you were talking to before.
The downside is that no one else can join in on the call until they turn it off as well.
You will be asked to confirm your action
When you call the number, you will be asked to confirm your action by clicking on the answer button or speaking to the person via the call. This is helpful as it helps them know you are there and that you took the time to set up conference call.
You will also be asked to confirm your account information when setting up a conference call. This can be done by providing your phone number, email address, and/or username and password for your Samsung Galaxy device.
This feature is helpful when participants need to send or receive messages while in a conference call. By confirming this feature, all parties are assured that they will not be disturbed while they are on a call. It is also helpful when sending large messages due to slow internet speed or limited data coverage.
This feature works in unison with another one called Safety Mode, which turns off all notifications and sounds on a phone so that only those who need the app can use it.
Tap on “disable conference call” again
After you are finished using the feature, tap on “disable conference call” again to secure the feature. Now, if you press the talk or listen button, you will be taken to a live chat where you can talk to someone else about the app.
You can also send a message to your friend directly through the app, similar to texting.
This feature is useful if you need to be connected to a team or company while using the app, as it prevents someone from talking while you are trying to communicate. It also helps with quality of service (QoS) requests, as apps can’t demand calls go through at the same time.
Approximately 15% of Android users disable conference call by entering their phone number twice in settings.
The conference call has now been disabled
Once you have enabled the call follow the same process to begin talking. You will need to accept the call-out and enter your information to begin talking.
You will be notified on your phone that you have been added as a contact and must accept that contact in order for the call to start. Once this is done, you can start talking!
This works on Android, iPhone, and Windows phones. If you have a desktop or laptop computer, this app does not work but we can still talk!
You will need to install this app once for it to work at the conference call loading stage. After this has happened, you can continue calling and taking messages! This app works on both outgoing and incoming calls so do not worry about that at first.
