Free conference calls

Host unlimited free video conferences with Dialpad Meetings' free plan! Get started in just a few minutes.

If your business has employees, customers, or prospects who are located around the world, then you probably need a video or audio conferencing tool.

These conference calling services have freed businesses from having to travel constantly just to talk to teams, customers, and prospects in other cities and countries. Instead, you can easily have an international conference call online just by sending a meeting link to your attendees.

Below, we’ll go over what you need to know about free conference calls, the best features to look for, and how to start making free conference calls in minutes with Dialpad Meetings (formerly known as UberConference).

What is a conference call?

A video or audio conference call works just like your typical business call, and it can happen over either just audio, or audio and video.

There is one nuance to keep in mind when looking for a free conference call solution: you can make conference calls as actual phone calls (where you dial other folks via phone numbers), or you can make conference calls with other people on your team who also have an account with your conference call provider.

Some “free conference call” providers won’t differentiate or clarify that up front, but here’s one easy way to tell: check if you’re just clicking people’s names in your contact database to start a conference call. If there are no associated phone numbers and you’re just clicking names, then these “conference calls” are more like virtual meetings instead of actual phone calls.
