When you need to talk to multiple people at once, Google Voice has a feature for that. Using Google voice you can simultaneously talk on the phone in conference with a total of 4 people (you plus 3 others). The best part? It’s free and included with your normal Google Voice account.
How To Make A Google Voice Conference Call
At a specified time, ask each conference call participant to call your Google Voice Number
As each participant calls in, simple answer the calls and Press 5 to add them to the conference.
That’s it! Don’t forget your have a 4 caller max (including you).
Note: If you need to organize a larger conference call, I highly recommend you give join.me a try. It’s fast, simple and can host 250 people at the same time. The bridge number is not toll free so I recommend using join.me with Google Voice or GMail. For smaller conf. call needs however, Google Voice just works!
