How to make conference calls on phones?

Use Built-in Phone Features:

Most smartphones come with built-in features for conference calls. Initiate a conference call by dialing the first participant's number. Once the call is established, locate the "Add Call" or "Merge Call" option in your phone's dialer app. Dial the second participant's number and select the merge option to connect all parties.

Third-Party Apps:

Alternatively, you can utilize third-party apps specifically designed for conference calls, such as WhatsApp, Skype, or Zoom mobile apps. Download and install the preferred app from your device's app store. Create an account if required, or sign in with your existing credentials.

Managing Conference Calls:

During a conference call, use the mute button on your phone to minimize background noise when you're not speaking. If you need to add additional participants during the call, access the "Add Call" or similar option and repeat the process. Some conference call apps provide additional features like screen sharing and chat. Explore the app's interface to make the most of these features.
