Recently we released a video on how to make video and audio calls with AirSend. In this blog post, we are going to list the step-by-step process. There are two ways to start a call with AirSend. Let’s begin with our favorite and simple way. 

Hitting the Phone Icon

To instantly start a call, hit the phone icon located at the top of the screen next to the people icon.

In AirSend, to join a call, there will be a link in the channel for users to click on to take them to the meeting automatically.

The second way to start a call is through slash commands.

Slash Commands

There are many features to our slash commands. One of which is, of course, calling. Type “/” for the list of options to appear.

And as always, we like to keep things simple. So, of course, it is only natural to have a clean and straightforward calling interface. When you are in a conference call, you have the option to: 

  • View your settings
    • Profile
    • Notifications
    • Audio and Video
    • Password
  • Mute/Unmute
  • Webcam 
  • Screen sharing
  • Maximize calling screen
  • Built-in chat

Now, we know this sounds like a lot, and it is. But we have taken these features and implemented them into a clean design where everything is easy to find. 

My favorite feature of AirSend’s voice and video call is the built-in chat. Because AirSend voice and video calls are built into the platform, it is easy to host meetings while also chatting in other channels- which is fantastic for multitasking. While chatting, you will have a grey bar located at the top with all your calling features, so you can talk in a meeting while messaging potential partners/clients. Think of these two features as a two-in-one combo.
