The StarLeaf app has controls that you can use while remaining in a voice or video call.

In-call controls are currently available in the desktop app only. On this page:

The controls available in a one-to-one call are shown and described below. For more information on meeting controls, go to Meeting controls.

Icon glossary

You can send a message to a user or group while you are in a call with them. They must be a StarLeaf user or a StarLeaf group, otherwise the chat option is unavailable.

When you are in a call, select the Chat icon from the in-call features at the top of the screen. This opens the chat panel to the left-hand side, allowing you to send messages while remaining in the ongoing call.

Add another person to the call by selecting Add participant. Enter the name, number, email address or video address of the person you wish to add to the call.

Transfer the call to another person. Enter a name, number, email address or video address of the person you wish to transfer the call to. Selecting this feature starts a call between you and the person you wish to transfer the call to. You can then confirm to transfer the call (this ends the call between you and the other users).

From AV Settings you can configure the camera, microphone, and speakers. For more information about configuring your camera and microphone, go to Audio and video settings

In More you can switch between computer and phone audio, and also access Audio & video settings (where you can configure the camera, microphone, and speakers).

Enter and exit full-screen mode from here. This control is only available on Windows devices. To switch between full screen mode on other devices, double click on the video.
