You can adjust your call settings during a call – this could be a call to someone who’s on Skype, group call, video call, group video call, or call to mobiles and landlines. Different options become available depending on the type of call. The following explains how you can use each call setting.
When you make a call, you will see these options displayed when you move your mouse in the calling area.
These options enable you to change the way your call is displayed and are described in the table below.
Click and select: Take a picture - This option is available during a 1-to-1 or group video call when another participant has turned on their webcam. Click to take a picture of the video feed. Send File - Send files to people in the conversation. Send Contacts - Share your contacts with the people in the conversation. Show entire screen - Share your screen on a voice or video call. You can choose to share your entire screen or just one window. If you start sharing your screen on a video call, you'll stop displaying your video. After you stop sharing your screen, you'll need to click the camera button to start video calling again. Add people to this call - Click to reveal your contact list, select more people to add to the call, then click Add to call.
