Using your Smartphone, Tablet or Computer for a Conference Call
“Smartphones? Tablets? Personal computer devices? But I thought you only needed a standard phone
for a Powwownow conference call?”
It’s OK, relax. You can still join or host one of our voice meetings armed only with a telephone. In
fact, we’ve got a whole guide about how to do just that (click here).
We just want you to know that you’ve got options.
Use your smartphone
Of course, you can use our telephone conferencing service on any mobile phone – just like a
landline, all you need to do is use your dial-in number (mobile shortcode to save you money 87373)
and enter your PIN. But if you’ve got a smartphone, you can also do that in a more 21st century way.
Whether your mobile uses Apple or Google’s operating system you can get in on the action. Our
Powwownow app is available on both iOS and Android platforms and allows you to easily arrange, host
and join a teleconference while streamlining a few fiddly bits you’d need to do on a regular phone.
You’ll still get the same low price, too, because even if you use the app, the only cost is still
just however much a normal call would set you back. So, it works just how it does on a landline.
Use your tablet
While an iOS or Android tablet might be able to run the Powwownow app, that doesn’t mean you’ll be
able to make calls. For that to work, your tablet would have to be 3G or 4G enabled, need a SIM card
inside it and you’d have to be paying for a data plan.
If all that’s in place and you’re getting a signal, then you can use the Powwownow app just as a
smartphone user can as detailed above.
Use your computer
While you can’t actually hold or join a Powwownow conference call through your computer, you can use
your Windows PC or Mac to arrange one, either via our Outlook plugin or browser-based scheduler
You can, of course, use your computer to host a web conference, through iMeet.
