Calls in Cisco Jabber for Android
Phone Services Accounts
When you call with Cisco Jabber, the app uses your work phone number and displays that work number to the person you call.
You can make calls in different ways, depending on how your system administrator sets up your account.
A basic phone services account allows you to make audio calls using Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). Your system administrator can also enable the following features for your account:
Video—You can make video calls.
Dial via Office (DvO)—You can call using your work phone number and your mobile voice network.
Wi-Fi or mobile data networks
Mobile voice network
Maximum number of calls at a time
Only one call is active at a time; the other is automatically placed on hold.

When you are connected to two internet calls, only one call is active at a time; the other is automatically placed on hold.
Control Far End Camera
In calls that support far-end camera control, you can adjust the far-end camera to give you a better view during video calls or you can control the conference layout of cameras. A Show Far End Camera Control icon is displayed in your call if the far-end camera is enabled for control. When you select the icon, depending on the way that the call is connected, you can either use it to move the far-end camera or change the conference layout of video screens.
If you call a unit or person directly that has a device with a controllable camera, you can control the far-end camera even if multiple people call into that device at one time. However, if you call a bridge, then you can only control the conference layout by selecting how you want the various cameras to be displayed on your conference call.
Ensure that the system you are calling supports far-end camera control (FECC). The feature must be enabled by your video conference administrator.
|1||After you have started a video call, select the Show Far End Camera Control icon.|
|2||Use the pan, tilt, and zoom button to control the call. |
Make a Jabber to Jabber Call
Jabber to Jabber voice and video calling allows you to make calls between two Jabber clients without registering in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
How a Jabber to Jabber call works:
You can make a Jabber to Jabber call with only one contact at a time.
When you are on a Jabber to Jabber call, and if you call another contact, then your ongoing call ends.
When you start a Jabber to Jabber call with a contact and your contact starts a Jabber to Jabber call with you at the same time, then your call is automatically connected, and you will not get any incoming call notice.
When you are on a mobile call, you cannot answer any Jabber to Jabber call. The incoming Jabber to Jabber call is listed as a missed call.
When you are on a Jabber to Jabber call, and you receive a mobile call, then Jabber to Jabber call ends immediately when you answer the mobile call.
