In the modern world of internet and technology which we’re surrounded with, people are constantly on-the-go. This is an amazing thing. While we’re on the road, at the airport or leaving dinner – business is still happening all the time. Commerce never really ends, right? So there’s nothing more convenient than being able to commit to a conference call from wherever you happen to be in the world. Whether you have an iPhone, Tablet, or Android device, you should fear not. This pretty simple guide is going to have you internationally connected with anyone at any time.
The best thing about being able to join a conference call or conversation on Skype through your mobile device is the fact that it can be absolutely free, or at least very inexpensive, depending on your mobile data plan. If you’re connected to someone’s Wi-Fi – it’s totally free to Skype. Oh, and it’s very easy to get started with your call. One slight difficulty that you might face is that at the moment, conference calls can only be created from a desktop computer or laptop. However, anyone with a mobile device is free to join these conference calls through Skype’s mobile app.
Conference call skype mobile:
- To join a Skype conference call, you’re obviously going to need the app first. Visit http://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-mobile/ to easily download the app for your specific platform.
- If you don’t already have an account with Skype at this time, you’ll need to register that too.
- Now you’re prepared to join in on the fun. You’re now going to have to dial the Skype number that belongs to the person who is hosting the conference call! Your business associate, partner or friend should have already given you their Skype number for the conference call, which you’ll dial on your mobile Skype app. If they haven’t given that number to you yet, you’ll just need to ask them for it!
Your business associates will then be able to add you to their conference call pretty effortlessly once you dial the number. You can then jump into business-conversation right away! Hopefully Skype updates the iOS and Android platforms to allow conference calls to be created from mobile devices in the near future. Until then, your next best bet is to take advantage of joining conference calls from the comfort of your living room or hotel. You no longer have to awkwardly wait at a desk to talk with the boss. You’re free to conference call at your own discretion.
