Google has officially rolled out the latest feature in terms of voice calling within Gmail. Of course, being able to make a call from within Gmail has been around for some time now and this latest just seems to double down on the support. And by double down, we are referring to how Google will now allow you to make multiple voice calls in Gmail — at the same time. And on the flip side, you can also receive multiple calls as well.
As for making multiple calls;
If you’re in a call and make a second one, your first call will be put on hold while you talk on your new call. You can switch between calls by pressing the “Resume” button on the call you want to talk on, which will automatically put the previous call on hold.
And receiving multiple calls;
Receiving incoming calls while you’re in another call is just as easy: you’ll receive a notification of the incoming call and can choose to accept it or not. If you take the new call, the previous call will be put on hold.
In addition, you can also simply place the person you are speaking with on-hold by pressing the appropriately named “Hold” button. And lastly, this should almost go without saying, but to resume a call that had been placed on hold you just hit the “Resume” button.
