How to Turn on the Speakerphone on a Samsung
By C. Taylor
The speakerphone feature of your Samsung phone broadcasts calls over a loud speaker, so you can share the call with others in the room. This feature is useful when you need to hold a conference call or want to talk while performing another task. Turning on the speakerphone varies between Samsung models, but Samsung makes the process simple regardless of the type of phone you have. The one thing each phone has in common is that you have to first connect a call before enabling the feature.
Tap the "Speakerphone" icon on the bottom Event Status Bar during a call to turn on the speakerphone for touch-capable Samsung phones.
Press the "Options" key on the Samsung phone and select "Speakerphone." If a confirmation dialog appears, select "Yes" to turn on the speakerphone on many Samsung models.
Press the "Speakerphone" key on the Samsung phones that have such a key. This key could be on the right side of the phone or could be the center "OK" or "X" button on the navigational keys.
- The speakerphone option only applies during a phone call, so make sure you first connect to a call before activating this feature.
- To turn off the speakerphone, repeat the process or simply disconnect the call.
- The speakerphone is considerably louder that the normal call volume, so be sure to move the phone away from your ear before enabling the speakerphone.
