Group Call

Overview

With the Group Call feature, you can talk to up to nine other SVRS customers at once.

Notes:

  • VP1 user is not able to create a group call. 
  • VP2 in the hearing mode can start or join Group Call.
  • You can add up to 9 other calls (for a total of 10 people including yourself) in one call.

Troubleshooting tip

  • I see audio meter (blue square) on the video but I don't use it
  • I am not able to create a Group Call
    • You may have encountered the issue when Sorenson's servers are temporarily unavailable. Try these troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue:
      1. Force quit app then login again or reboot the VP.
      2. Check your internet to make sure it is working as expected. Open a web browser and if it opens Internet Service Provider page containing some kind of warning then there may be issue with your provider and you may need to call them.
