How to make and receive video calls

Making a video call
Want to place a video call? It’s just like making a voice call, only you have to press the Video Call button.
  • If the button’s green before you place a call, you can choose to place the call as a video call.
  • If the button lights up after placing an HD Voice call, press Video Call to change to a video call.

Getting a video call
When you get a video call, choose any one of these options:
  • Accept video call
  • Accept but don’t show me
  • Accept as voice only
  • Decline
  • Decline with message (only on select devices)

Keep in mind: Accept video call starts a 2-way call where both parties can see each other.
