Article Summary

Sometimes a little face-to-face makes all the difference. 

Dialpad and Dialpad Meetings are fully integrated for videoconferencing, but you can also use the Dialpad app to launch quick, one-on-one video calls.

Let's take a look at video calls in Dialpad.

Who can use this feature
Video calling from within the Dialpad app is available for Dialpad users calling other Dialpad users within their company.

Start a video call

To start a video call from the Dialpad app, navigate to a conversation thread and select the More Menu beside the Video icon.

You have two options:

  1. Place the video call via Dialpad Meetings
  2. Place the video call via Dialpad 

Select your preference and Dialpad will automatically dial your contact.

When the contact answers, their video will appear on the screen.

Receive a video call

To receive a video call, simply select Answer when you receive the Incoming video call notification in the top-left corner of your Dialpad app.

  • Mute/Unmute
  • Video On/Off

 Frequently asked questions

Why don't I see the video call icon beside every contact?

Video calling from within the Dialpad app is available for Dialpad users calling other Dialpad users within their company. If your contact is an external (non-Dialpad) contact, you'll need to use Dialpad's Ai Meetings to video conference with them.
