Mobile Devices and Conference Calls 1

Mobile technology means that conference calls are possible, wherever, whenever. If you can not be at a land line for some reason, then mobile conference calling is a godsend.

With companies increasingly having staff worldwide, conference calls on the move is very important. Every Wireless communication network has meant that mobile devices can access a network and communicate from wherever they happen to be, or they are located. In recent years, the explosion of mobile devices, with smartphones leading the charge, has resulted in a growth of need and use of mobile conference calls.

Most of the modern mobile devices allow conference calls. There are mainly two core methods to partake in conference calling on your mobile device, which can be listed briefly as you can use the software on your device that allows you to set up a conference call with a few simple steps. You may need to install third-party software to achieve this. This software generally also offers many additional features such as a scheduler and contact book. However, it is best to check with your service provider as some networks do not allow conferences to make calls and its software.


The second option is to dial into a conference bridge. Of course, this is not limited to mobile phones; this is the same as through a land line. Several companies offer dial-in conference calling services, and they are very cost-efficient as you only have to pay for the cost of the call.

As landlines lose their market share to mobile operators, expect to see mobile conference calling continue developing and entering more people’s lives.
