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 or voice session on the web (screen sharing not yet available via the app). To start a video/voice conversation:

  1. Click the video icon at the top right of the room.
  2. This creates and posts a link accessible to everyone in the room. Click on the link to join the call.

Joining a call opens a browser window where you can see shared video and control your video/voice settings. The feature supports the latest versions of the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • 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.
