Video and Voice Messaging

Live video/voice messaging is available in every Upwork Messages chat room. It also supports screen sharing while in a video session on the web.

To start a video/voice conversation

  • Click the phone icon at the top right of the room
    • This creates and posts a link accessible to everyone in the room

Joining a call opens a browser window where you can see the shared video and control your video/voice settings. When the call is over, hang up by clicking the end call button.

  • Opera

To provide feedback on the video/voice messaging feature, click on leave feedback in the top left of the video screen while on a call.

Current limitations

  • Only users who are part of the room can join the call. To create a group call, you will need to create a group chat room first
  • Calls are available only on the web interface and desktop app. Mobile web and app are not supported at this time
  • Only 10 users can join the call. We plan to support larger group calls in the future
