Making a 3-way call is also known as making a conference call. It is when you are on call with more than one person. In a conference call, all the participating callers can be made to hear each other. Isn’t that neat? Without having to convey what one says to another, you can simply let one participant hear what the other has said, and even that in real time. The settings for making a conference call vary, depending on whether your phone is an Android or iPhone. This tutorial covers how to make a 3-Way call on Android in 8 easy steps.

On lower-end phone networks and models, users are only allowed to merge two calls at the same time. However, on newer, higher-end phone models and networks, you can merge up to five calls at the same time.
