Add Video to Calls

The video calling capability of your 8x8 Work extension extends to your mobile application as well. During a live call, you can start a video session and chat face-to-face with the called party.

To initiate video during an active call, simply tap in the call management controls. The video session begins. You have access to the following video controls:
