Flock now introduces voice calling and conferencing capabilities.
Mac: Hey team, let’s welcome Roger, our new PR manager.
Mac: Roger, please introduce yourself.
Mac: Roger, we can’t see you on video. Are you with us?
Mac: Looks like we lost Roger to a poor connection!
Roger: Oh hey, Mac. Could you please repeat yourself?
A typical video conference scenario, are we right? Sometimes, you just need to get on a call with your team members instantly, without having to worry about your internet bandwidth (or how you look for that matter!).
So what do you do? You turn to the good ol’ telephone.
Great news: Flock now introduces audio calling and conferencing capabilities. A bunch of our users had requested for this feature and we’re delighted to finally bring it to you!
With the feature, all you have to do is invite your team to join a conference room via a pin. You can invite up to ten participants (including you) and chat away for a good 90 minutes. While users in US, UK, Canada and India can call using their local/domestic numbers, our users worldwide would be required to dial in a US number, while connecting with their teams.

If you’re moderating the call:
Step 1: Hit the Bridge icon from within a channel or in a one-to-one chat
Step 2: Dial in the number displayed on your screen
Step 3: Use the moderator pin to enter the conference room
If you’re invited to join the call:

Just reminding you: You can connect with up to ten members via this feature and talk away for a total of 90 minutes. The feature allows one call per team at a time, but hey, there’s always more to expect in the future…
