Video Calling

maaiiconnect lets you have more personal interactions with visitors, customers, and fellow staff members through 1-on-1 video calling. With this feature, you and the other party can see one another while having interactive discussions.

 

Starting a Video Call

You can start a video call with a customer, visitor, or staff member by clicking on the Video Call icon on the top-right corner of the chat room panel.

If the other party is a fellow staff member, their Workspace will display an incoming video call screen. The call screen also gives them the option to decline the call or pick it up as an audio call.
