How do you connect 3 calls?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

To connect three calls on an Android phone, you can follow these steps:

1. Make the initial call: Open the Phone app on your Android phone and dial the number of the first person you want to include in the conference call. Wait for them to answer the call and establish a connection.

2. Add the second call: While on the first call, look for the “Add Call” icon in the Phone app. It usually appears as a person with a plus sign next to it. Tap on this icon to put the first call on hold and initiate a new call.

3. Dial the second party: In the dialer interface, enter the phone number of the second person you wish to include in the conference call. After entering the number, tap the call button to initiate the call.

4. Merge the calls: Once the second person answers the call, you should see the option to merge the two calls. Look for the “Merge” icon, which is typically represented by two arrows merging into one. Tap on this icon to merge the first and second calls together.

5. Add the third call: After successfully merging the first two calls, you can now add the third party to the conference call. Again, tap on the “Add Call” icon and dial the number of the third person you want to include in the call.

6. Merge all the calls: When the third person answers the call, you should see the option to merge all the calls together. This option may appear as the same “Merge” icon you used previously. Tap on it to merge all three calls into a single conference call.

7. Continue the conference call: Once all the calls are merged successfully, you will have established a conference call with three participants. You can now talk and interact with all three parties simultaneously.

Note: The exact appearance and placement of icons may vary slightly depending on the Android phone model and the version of the operating system you are using. However, the general steps mentioned above should be applicable to most Android devices.

Personal experience:
I have used conference calling on my Android phone several times, especially for work-related discussions and group conversations. It has proven to be a convenient and efficient way to connect with multiple people at once, regardless of their physical location. By following the steps mentioned above, I have successfully connected three or more calls and participated in productive conference calls. It’s a useful feature for collaborating with colleagues, conducting meetings, or simply catching up with friends and family who are in different places.
