Is there a way to listen in on a call?

Is there a way to listen in on a call?

The person leading our Client Relations team was really excited to start training in the newest members of our growing team by listening / whispering / barging on their calls. I thought we could do that through our VoIP provider's service, but that service is available only on incoming calls. A supervisor is not able to listen in on / whisper on / barge in on outgoing calls.


I know there are a few things we've been able to do as a function on the Polycom phone, not of the VoIP service and I'm hoping this is one of them, but I haven't been able to find that path yet. Any ideas?


Software: Version

Model: Polycom VVX 600

Call Platform: OnSIP

Hello @davehultin ,


Welcome to the Poly Community.

There are no standalone phone features for this and this would require the support of the sip server. Please work with your supplier.


Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.
