Switch between calls

With the call waiting and hold features, you can handle multiple calls. When you are on a call and another call arrives, call waiting alerts you. When you answer the new call, the active call is placed on hold. 

Depending on how your phone is set up, you can manage three or more calls. You can switch among these calls, resuming a call and placing another on hold.

On the desktop app

On the desktop app, you can manage two calls. When you're on a call and a second call comes in, you can answer and disconnect the first call, answer and place the first call on hold, or send the new call to voicemail. 

On the notification message, click the AnswerAnswer and Hold, or Ignore button. The first option disconnects the original call.
